Summary and Analysis of Cosmetics Random Inspections by China NMPA in 2019

444 batches of cosmetics failed sampling inspections conducted by China cosmetic supervision authorities in 2019. Hair dye and hair perm products had the greatest number of compliance problems. Reasons for cosmetic inspection failure included inconsistencies between the ingredients (and relative concentrations of ingredients) revealed during product testing and the ingredients (declared on the product label. Other major issues were products adulterated with banned ingredients, microbial contamination, etc.

China National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) organizes a number of national supervision and random inspections on different cosmetics across the country every year. The results of these inspection campaigns often reveals high risk market segments and often guides the development of regulation and further inspection campaigns going forward. Analyzing this data can also point to segments subject to priority inspection by authorities, thereby warranting extra care on the part of the industry to ensure the compliance of their products.
