1. A cosmetic product placed on the market must not cause damage to human health when applied under normal or reasonably foreseeable conditions of use, taking account, in particular, of the product’s presentation, its labeling, instructions for its use and disposal, warning statements as well as any other indication or information provided by the manufacturer or his authorized agent or by any other person responsible for placing the product on the market.

2. The provision of such warnings shall not, in any event, exempt any person from compliance with the other requirements laid down in this Directive.
