If pre-moistened hygiene products, such as pre-moistened toilet paper or refreshing tissues, are point of interest, the soaking lotion is a cosmetic product that is subject to the German Cosmetic Decree.

Its components must be displayed on the packaging. Only those products that represent no health hazard are allowed to be marketed.

The Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (Bundesinstitut Risikobewertung - BfR) has stated the criteria for the evaluation of intimate hygiene products and hygiene tissues.
