With a stable economy and a high disposable income, the Cosmetic Market of UAE flourishes despite Global Economic Fluctuations. With the presence of numerous Cosmetic Companies in the UAE, the average consumer in the country has access to major Global Cosmetic Brands. Entering this Competitive and Attractive market poses complex Regulatory Challenges for Cosmetic Manufacturers.

The Dubai Municipality (DM) and the Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology (ESMA) is responsible for regulating Cosmetics in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Registration with the Dubai Municipality (DM) allows the Cosmetic Product to be sold in a Retail Chain while the ESMA registration enables the Product to be imported into the country, at the port of entry.

For Cosmetic Product Registration in the UAE, the Company requires a local ‘General trading’ license. Hence, a Local representative is required for registration.

With a vast experience in the UAE market and a thorough understanding of the Cosmetic Regulations, Freyr provides Cosmetic Regulatory Services in the UAE and assists manufacturers in complying with the Regulatory requirements of the market.
