We observe with concern how nowadays simplified messages about what is tested, safe and legal in cosmetics flow to users from many information streams. Taking shortcuts inevitably leads to incorrect analysis and simply misleads consumers, adds Blanka Chmurzyńska-Brown. The Office of Competition and Consumer Protection manages this area on the Vistula River, which is why we asked them to look over Kosmopedia and recommend it to cosmetics users.
The patronage of the President of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection for Kosmopedia is not only a honour. It is also a sign that state institutions understand the difficult situation which users of fast-moving consumer goods, including cosmetics, are currently facing, adds Blanka Chmurzyńska-Brown. Our priority is that the app, which will be released soon, helps consumers make informed choices. It will be the first tool in Poland to identify ingredients, not to evaluate products. Integrated with kosmopedia.org, it will have enormous educatio¬nal potential and most importantly, it will sell nothing but knowledge!
