Who we are?

Who we are?

The Polish Association of Cosmetic and Detergent Industry has been operating since 1992, originally existing as the Polish Association of Cosmetics and Homecare Products Producers. The decision to change the name was taken as a consequence of the dynamic development of the Association. The companies that have joined us are no longer only cosmetic and detergent manufacturers but also distributors, retailers, raw material suppliers, laboratories and other business collaborators.

Being part of the Association enables members to influence the conditions in which the cosmetic and home care products industries function both in Poland and the European Union. Our voice reaches the decision-makers who are making decisions which will impact on the future of the cosmetic and detergent industries.

 If you are:


  • cosmetics
  • detergents
  • aerosols
  • biocidal products

  • raw materials or packaging for cosmetics and/or detergent industry


  • offering cosmetics and/or detergents

Join us – we will support You!

We are an active member of the following international organizations: Cosmetics Europe, International Association for Soaps, Detergents and Maintenance Products A.I.S.E.  and European Aerosol Federation FEA. While participating in meetings, discussions and consultations, we present the position of the Polish cosmetics and detergent industry. Thanks to that, we have become an important stakeholder, whose opinion is taken under consideration by the Polish government, the European Parliament and the European Commission – these institutions have a direct influence on the legislative change process and the final shape of the law.

The advantages of cooperating with us include access to the up-to-date expertise, assistance in crisis situations, support in the face of unjustified restrictions as well as attractive conditions of participation in trade conference and trainings.

Our activity areas:

  • cosmetics
