Cosmetics market in Brazil is anticipated to grow at a significant level in coming days due to changes in the lifestyle and growing demand for skin care. In addition to this, increasing consumer awareness regarding skin care is the further forecast to aid the market growth in Brazil. Cosmetics must be subjected to cosmetics notification or cosmetics registration with the Agencia Nacional de Vigilancia Sanitaria (ANVISA) i.e., the National Health Surveillance Agency, the Authority that regulates the cosmetics’ production, import, and trade.

Cosmetics in Brazil are classified as Grade I and Grade II based on the level of risk. As per the ANVISA cosmetics regulations, there are two (02) ways for cosmetics to be authorized in the Brazilian market i.e., cosmetics notification of Grade I products and prior cosmetics registration of Grade II products. Companies legally constituted in Brazil and with the ANVISA Operating Permit (AFE) can import and notify/register cosmetics in Brazil. Therefore, overseas manufacturers should have a commercial agreement with the local company that will undertake the technical and legal responsibility and notify/register Cosmetics with the ANVISA. Notification of Grade I cosmetics and registration of Grade II cosmetics must be done through petition system in Brazil. Company registration is the first step to get access to the petitioning system after which the identification of the appropriate subject code of the petition and required documentation is submitted to file petition. Once the notification of cosmetic products is submitted to the ANVISA, the product can be placed in the market by the company immediately. For cosmetic product registration for Grade II category, the registration process is initiated by submitting an online petition. Post receiving the petition, the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) reviews the registration dossier to ensure the compliance. The result of petition is published in the Official Gazette in the form of registration number. Upon successful registration, products can be imported and distributed in the Brazilian market.
