Cosmetics Regulatory Services in Canada

Overview

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 the composition and proposed use of product. Hence, identifying the right usage criteria is crucial for classification. It may also be noted that the sunscreen lotions, toothpastes, anti-dandruff shampoos and antiperspirants, which exhibit the therapeutic effect, are considered as drugs by Health Canada. As a well-explored and established market, entering Canada’s Cosmetics market poses challenge not only in terms of competition, but also in terms of its advanced regulations.
