From the current market trends, it is evident that the Philippines is growing rapidly in the cosmetic products sector. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Philippines (formerly known as the Bureau of Food and Drugs) under the Department of Health is responsible for regulating cosmetic products and ensuring the safety, purity, and quality of cosmetics distributed in the Philippines market.

As per the FDA requirements for cosmetics in the Philippines, all cosmetic product companies are required to obtain a License to Operate (LTO) prior to the manufacture, importation, distribution, and sale of cosmetics. The License to Operate (LTO) in the Philippines is issued to ensure that the establishments of imported and distributed cosmetics are duly registered with the FDA.
