The Ministry of Trade and its agencies such as the Gambia Standard Bureau should establish a lab that can conduct the necessary test and provide the Cosmetic Safety Assessment Certificate . The cosmetic sector is graduation growing in the Gambia and we have the potential to grow to international brands
