Ingredient quality is a fundamental factor in ensuring cosmetic product safety and quality. Regulatory bodies worldwide recognize this and have made ingredient safety at the core of cosmetics oversight. To safeguard marketed products, they closely monitor ingredient use in the cosmetics industry and provide regular updates to ingredient regulations.

This year has seen a substantial number of global regulatory changes related to cosmetic ingredients. China released Index of Cosmetics Safety Assessment Data from Authoritative Organizations and Ingredient Usage Information of Marketed Products, covering 5,885 ingredients. This enriched the available ingredient data and provided a reference for cosmetic safety assessment. The 39th ASEAN Cosmetic Scientific Body (ACSB) meeting approved new amendments to the ingredient annexes of the ASEAN Cosmetic Directive. China’s Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, the EU, the US, and Canada have also introduced several ingredient use requirement changes.

To help cosmetics stakeholders stay informed and ensure compliance with these evolving regulations, ChemLinked organized this webinar to detail the key cosmetic ingredient regulation updates across the globe in the first half of 2024.
