Health Canada Cosmetic Registration - Overview

The cosmetics market in Canada is flourishing, with due credit given to teenagers and youth for their increased consumption. In Canada, cosmetics are regulated by Health Canada (HC) under the Food and Drugs Act and Cosmetic Regulations Act. The products are classified based on the representation, composition, and proposed use of the product or level of action. Hence, identifying the right usage criteria is crucial for classification. It may also be noted that sunscreen lotions, toothpaste, anti-dandruff shampoos, and antiperspirants, which exhibit therapeutic effects, are considered drugs by HC. As a well-explored and established market, entering Canada’s cosmetics market poses challenges not only in terms of competition but also in terms of its advanced regulations.
