The adoption of the code INCI has been made mandatory from the 1st January 1997 by the European Commission , in order to provide additional protection for the consumer.
The names of the ingredients are listed using an international code , said INCI ( International Nomenclature for Cosmetic Ingredients ), the same for all EU countries and used in other countries , such as USA, Russia, Brazil, Canada , South Africa , etc ., in this way each of us can know the composition of products identifying the presence of the substances to which you are allergic and substances that would not normally be present.
THE LIST OF INGREDIENTS INCI ACCORDING TO THE CODE
As required by the law , the label must include the list of ingredients contained in the dermo- cosmetic preceded by the word “ingredients ” or ” ingredienti”.
This nomenclature contains some terms in Latin (referring to the botanical name and those of the ingredients present in the pharmacopoeia ) , while the majority is in English and in the case of dyes are used according to the Colour Index numbers (eg CI 45430 ).
