A report on a survey to assess compliance with the Trade Practices (Consumer Product Information Standards) (Cosmetics) Regulations 1991 by online cosmetic subscription services.

This mandatory standard requires cosmetics to be labelled with a list of ingredients, which is important because it helps consumers identify and avoid ingredients that they may be allergic or sensitive to, or otherwise concerned about. Consumers who suffer an adverse reaction from a cosmetic are also able to quickly check the ingredients list to identify the possible causes and seek appropriate treatment.
