Helping you to write your Product Information File (PIF)

Do you require a Product Information File  – or PIF – for your cosmetic hair or skin product? Need help to write one? We provide a PIF authoring and review service to help producers comply with the PIF requirements as part of the EU regulations for cosmetic products.

The Legal basis

What we will do:


We will author a Product Information File for your cosmetic products in line with the EU regulations. We can also review one you have prepared and provide feedback and recommendations.

What you’ll get:


You’ll receive your Product Information File dossier in line with the requirements. We’ll also provide any guidance you need and answer your questions.

What you’ll need to provide:


The following information is required:


  1. Cosmetic safety assessment or CPSR
  2. MSDS & CoAs

Verify the CBD content


While cannabinoid testing is not a requirement of the Product Information File, you may want to get your products tested to ensure your products contain the CBD content they claim to have. We offer fast & reliable CBD testing service so you can be sure your products are of high quality.



The price of the PIF authoring service depends on the difficulty & complexity of the ingredients.  That is, difficulty with obtaining relevant information either because they are unusual, or new and so takes more time to gather details. In contrast, for a cosmetic where information on the ingredients is readily available, the prices for a PIF are lower.
