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) are responsible for regulating cosmetics in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Cosmetic registration with the Dubai Municipality (DM) allows the product to be sold in a retail chain, while ESMA registration enables the product to be imported into the country at the port of entry.

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

With a vast experience in the UAE market and a thorough understanding the cosmetic regulations, Freyr provides cosmetic Regulatory services in UAE and assists manufacturers in complying with the Regulatory requirements of the market.
