China Sunscreens Regulations

In China not all products claiming sun protection are regulated as special use cosmetics that have to register with CFDA and are subject to stricter examination and review. According to the regulations, products only containing physical UV filters (e.g. zinc oxide and titanium dioxide) which do not indicate SPF/PA value are considered as non-special use cosmetics and subject to a comparatively simple filing process and shorter testing period of 2-3 months. However products containing chemical UV filters require registration and a long testing period of 8-10 months.
