Cosmetics Regulatory Services in Philippines


From the current market trends, it is evident that Philippines is growing rapidly in the cosmetic products sector. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (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.

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

Freyr provides end-to-end Regulatory services to assist with processes, such as, LTO procurement, registration, and other post-approval activities.
