South Korea is known for its innovation in the cosmetic products industry. The steady demand for cosmetic products in face of global economic fluctuations reflect the strength of the South Korean market. But with reputed product manufacturers competing vehemently, finding a breakthrough in the market and decoding the Regulatory perspectives of the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) can be challenging. MFDS, South Korea classifies the beauty products into three categories: General Cosmetics, Function Cosmetics and Quasi drugs. Additionally, it is mandatory for all domestic and foreign cosmetic products to label the packages in Korean language as per the Korean Cosmetic Products Act (KPCA), 2000. According to the Korean Cosmetics Act, quality testing must be conducted by lot/batch. However, the testing required for products differ based on the category of the cosmetic product.
