The cosmetics market in Canada generated increasing revenues over the past years and is expected to grow to roughly 1.8 billion U.S. dollars by 2026. All cosmetics sold in Canada must be safe to use and must not pose any health risk. According to the Food and Drugs Act and the Cosmetic Regulations, cosmetic manufacturer and importer must provide a list of the product's ingredients, and notify Health Canada that they are selling the product. Failure to notify may result in a product being denied entry into Canada or removed from sale.
In addition, all cosmetics must follow the requirements outlined in the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act and its associated regulations. Any chemicals found in cosmetics may be subject to the Canadian Environmental Protection Act.
In this webinar, Health Canada, the cosmetic competent authority, will explain the cosmetic regulatory framework, compliance requirements, ingredient use requirements, future regulatory plan, etc. and finally provide references and guidance for the industry.
