RJ Mineral Cosmetics also meet and comply with standard operating procedures, hold current worldwide product and business insurance.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is responsible for the regulation of products that make claims; Cosmetics can fall into this category though this is not always the case. We recommend that you contact the TGA with any questions you have in regards to your new Cosmetics line, and any wording or claims that you may make on your product brochures, labels etc.
The TGA can also help you with informtaion on SPF regulations that apply to a secondary sunscreen cosmetic, speak to them today about how you can market your SPF Mineral Powder Foundations.
As for advice on setting up your own business or regulations that may govern your new business, we suggest that you contact your local Business Advisory Service; these can be located in the yellow pages and have an office in every state.
