In Switzerland, cosmetic products are regarded, in accordance with the Lebensmittelgesetz (LMG) (The Foodstuffs Act) Article 5 lit. b, as a consumable or item for personal use, which is the reason why The Foodstuffs Act is applicable to cosmetics. What cosmetic products are is defined in Article 35 of the Ordinance of Foodstuffs and Commodities (Lebensmittel- und Gebrauchsgegenständeverordnung).
