Cosmetic Product Registration in Vietnam - Overview

Cosmetics play an important role in enhancing one’s inherent beauty and physical features. The increase in consciousness regarding personal appearance among individuals is driving the growth of the cosmetic Industry. The aging population and rapid urbanization across Vietnam are fostering the growth of the cosmetics market. Also, the surge in cosmetic spending is the resurgence of natural products, along with changing consumers’ preferences towards products made with natural ingredients. The growing demand for natural products is estimated to fuel the Vietnam cosmetic market, leading to the need for Vietnam cosmetic registration.

The Drug Administration of Vietnam (DAV), Vietnam’s Cosmetic Health Authority (HA), has adopted the guidelines of the ASEAN Cosmetic Directive (ACD). Hence, the cosmetics regulations in Vietnam are in line with other Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries. According to cosmetics Regulatory services in Vietnam, cosmetic products being marketed in Vietnam are required to be compliant with these guidelines. The pathway for cosmetics to enter the Vietnam Market includes product compliance checks, cosmetic product registration in Vietnam and maintaining a Product Information File (PIF). As per the Vietnam Cosmetic Health Authority (HA) and its regulations, ensuring the safety of cosmetic products is another mandate that should be followed by cosmetic companies entering Vietnam. Safety assessment is documented in the form of a Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR), which is a key document of PIF and should be readily accessible to the DAV (Vietnam Ministry of Public Health/Cosmetic Health Authority of Vietnam (MoH).

An added advantage of marketing a cosmetic product in Vietnam or any other ASEAN country is that it gives easy access to the remaining ASEAN markets because of the Harmonised Regulations. Approximately 70-80% of the PIF already in use in Vietnam can be reused to notify the same product in other ASEAN markets, making it a cost-effective and time-saving strategy.
