Formerly, there were no requirements for other cosmetic efficacy claims except for sunscreens and the waterproof efficacy of sunscreen products. The CSAR released on June 29 stipulates that Efficacy claims of cosmetics should be supported by a sufficient scientific basis.

Followed that, China NIFDC released the draft Guidelines for Cosmetic Efficacy Claim Evaluation for public consultation on September 1, 2020. The Guidelines clarify the evaluation principles, exemptions, accepted evaluation methods and institutions, obligations of institutions and registrants/notifiers, necessary content in the evaluation report, etc.
