Cosmetic regulations in a complex environment
Being compliant with the regulations in force in the country of commercialization can be very complex and time consuming for manufacturers. Each region, country and even state – in the US, have their own rules regarding cosmetic products.
Regulations are evolving quickly – to answer consumer demand of traceability and safety, making it even more difficult to follow up for businesses. Selling cosmetic has never been tougher. With globalization, manufacturers commercialize their products in different countries, which means different regulations to follow. Product formulation, packaging, labeling and advertising are supervised by many rules. In European Union, you must follow the Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009, in the US, it is the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act but each state can have its own restrictions (e.g. California with the Proposition 65, etc.) and in Canada, rules are defined by the Cosmetic Regulations.
In addition to country-specific rules, governments can be part to international agreements such as the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) or the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS).
