Global Cosmetics Registration
Breaking Barriers for Complex Markets
Cosmetics are constituted of mixtures of chemical compounds derived from either natural sources or synthetically created ones. Cosmetics have various purposes. Those designed for personal and skin care can be used to cleanse or protect the body or skin.
Cosmetics designed to enhance one’s appearance (makeup) can be used to conceal blemishes, enhance one’s natural features (such as the eyebrows and eyelashes), and add colour to a person’s face. It can be used to change the appearance of the face entirely to resemble a different person, creature or object. Cosmetics can also be designed to add fragrance to the body.
Why registration is required?
The essential elements for the cosmetic industry’s growth are the regulatory framework, compliance requirements, efficacy, safety, and marketing of cosmetic products. Different regulatory bodies worldwide have their perspectives on regulation; additionally, governments such as the United States, the European Union, and Japan adhere to a strict regulatory framework which is very complex and challenging to attain. The alignment of a regulatory framework will be critical in removing trade obstacles, expanding the market on a global scale, innovating in the creation and presentation of new products, and, most critically, ensuring the safety and efficacy of marketed products.
Who needs to register?
Regulatory compliance aims to offer a high-quality product to the public that is safe and effective for human use. Cosmetic legislations are based on the same principles of quality, safety, and efficacy, and some vital regulatory standards like terminology and labelling, to govern cosmetic products on the market. The variances specified by regulatory agencies around the world have an impact on the safety assessments of cosmetic items. Regulatory compliance can assist combat the negative aspects of cosmetics, such as allergic reactions and even skin cancer. Cosmetic regulations must be established for society to become healthier and safer due to more rigorous and harmonised regulations. Hence, it is vital that manufacturers, importers, distributors, or a third party appointed as an Authorised representative, ensure that their cosmetic products are being compliant and registered with the regulatory body.
