    Goals / Remit

    Cosmetics Europe represents the interests of the cosmetics and personal care industry in Europe. Ranging from dermo cosmetics, antiperspirants, fragrances, make-up and shampoos, to soaps, sunscreens and toothpastes, cosmetics and personal care products play an essential role in all stages of our life. European citizens use cosmetic products as part of their daily lives, serving their essential needs and expectations. These needs and expectations drive our industry as well as delivering innovative products that enhance consumers’ well-being and quality of life and boost their self-esteem. Cosmetics Europe works closely with the European Institutions to achieve balanced policies and legislation, aiming to contribute to a regulatory and policy environment that encourages innovation and supports a strong and competitive industry serving the needs of consumers. Cosmetics Europe work with other trade associations to address cross sectorial issues impacting the European industry.

    16 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
