[Cosmetics] – A new Cosmetics Supervision and Administration Regulation simplifies the rules that apply to registering and controlling cosmetic products sold in China.
This newsletter presents the main changes affecting cosmetics manufactured outside of China and imported into China for marketing purposes.
The rules that apply to domestic cosmetics are slightly different to those that apply to imported cosmetics.
A cosmetic product is considered to be imported if the last manufacturing stage involving contact with the product itself is carried out outside of China. Inversely, if this final stage is carried out within China, the product is considered to be a domestic product.
