Ingredient's quality directly affects cosmetics' quality. Being keenly aware of this fact, regulatory departments around the world have been placing ingredient safety at the core of cosmetics supervision. To ensure the marketed products are safe enough, they closely monitor the ingredient use in cosmetic industry, and provide regular updates to ingredient regulations.
So far this year, a great number of ingredient-related regulatory changes have taken place globally. China launched consultation on the draft Safety and Technical Standard for Cosmetics 2022, which adjusts the list of restricted ingredients used in cosmetics and standardizes the application scope of some ingredients. ASEAN held the 35th ASEAN Cosmetic Scientific Body (ACSB) meeting, during which it approved new amendments to cosmetic ingredients in the Annexes of the ASEAN Cosmetic Directive. China Taiwan, South Korea, EU have also introduced several regulatory changes.
To help cosmetic stakeholders stay vigilant to cope with these changes and further ensure the compliance of their products, ChemLinked organized this webinar to detail the cosmetic ingredient regulation updates across the globe in 2022.
