Cosmetics play an important role in enhancing one’s inherent beauty and physical features. The increasing consciousness regarding physical appearance among individuals is one of the key factors driving the growth of the cosmetic industry. The ageing population and rapid urbanization across Vietnam are fostering the growth of the cosmetics market in the country. Also, the surge in cosmetics sale is due to the resurgence of natural products and growing consumer demand for products made with natural ingredients. The rising demand for natural products is considered to have fuelled the Vietnamese cosmetic market, and hence, Cosmetic Registration in Vietnam comes into the picture.

The Drug Administration of Vietnam (DAV), under the Ministry of Health (MoH), which is Vietnam’s cosmetic Health Authority (HA), has adopted the guidelines of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Cosmetic Directive (ACD), and thus, the cosmetics regulations in Vietnam are in alignment with the regulations of other ASEAN countries. According to the cosmetics Regulatory services in Vietnam, cosmetic products being marketed in the country need to be compliant with these guidelines. The pathway for cosmetics to enter the Vietnamese market includes a product compliance check, Cosmetic Product Registration, and maintaining the Product Information File (PIF).

As per the Vietnamese cosmetic HA and its regulations, the Safety of Cosmetic Products is another mandate that should be followed by cosmetic companies entering Vietnam. Safety assessment is documented in the form of a Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR), which is the key document of the PIF and should be readily available to the DAV.

An added advantage of marketing a cosmetic product in Vietnam or any other ASEAN country is that it gives easy access to the remaining ASEAN markets; this is because of the harmonised nature of the regulations across these countries. Seventy to 80% of the PIF, which are already in use in Vietnam, can be reused to notify the same product in other ASEAN markets, which is a cost-effective and time-saving strategy.
