Being the largest economy in Asia, it is no wonder that China is an attractive destination for cosmetic manufacturers. With a high rate of consumption and an ever-increasing consumer base, the chinese cosmetic market experiences steady growth.

Cosmetic product registration and notification in China are regulated under the Cosmetic Supervision and Administration Regulation (CSAR).

Imported Cosmetics are regulated by three (03) competent Regulatory authorities in China:

  • State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR)
  • National Medical Products Administration (NMPA)
  • General Administration of Customs (GAC)

Under the current CSAR, cosmetics in China are classified into two (02) categories - Special cosmetics and General cosmetics (Non-Special Cosmetics).

  1. Special Cosmetics
    • Hair dyes
    • Hair perming products
    • Freckle-removing (whitening) products
    • Sunscreens
    • Anti-hair loss products
    • Cosmetics with new efficacy
  1. General Cosmetics
    • Other cosmetics except those classified under special cosmetics
