Cosmetics Regulatory Services in Canada

Request a Quote


The cosmetics market in Canada is flourishing, with due credit given to teenagers and youth for their increased consumption. In Canada, cosmetics are regulated by Health Canada (HC) under the Food and Drugs Act and Cosmetic Regulations Act. The products are classified based on their composition and proposed use. Hence, identifying the right usage criteria is crucial for classification. It may also be noted that Sunscreen Lotions, Toothpastes, Anti-Dandruff Shampoos, and Antiperspirants, which exhibit therapeutic effects, are considered drugs by Health Canada. As a well-explored and established market, entering Canada’s cosmetics market poses a challenge not only in terms of competition but also in terms of its advanced regulations.
