Natural/organic cosmetic has become a global trend recently, which leads to a boosting market volume. Consumers' increasing awareness of product safety and environmental protection also accelerates the development of eco-friendly cosmetic products. As a result, the natural and organic cosmetic market is predicted to reach the highest growth in sales, with an average annual growth rate of 7.8% in the following five years. However, to gain market share, product compliance is essential. Therefore, ChemLinked presents this webinar to help enterprises understand the COSMOS standard and Korea's natural/organic registration requirement.
COSMOS is an international standard for organic and natural cosmetics. It was co-founded by Germany, Belgium, France, Italy, and the United Kingdom to unify European standards for cosmetics certification. COSMOS is deemed the most reliable international organic and natural cosmetic standard.
Apart from COSMOS, South Korea has its own natural and organic cosmetics certification mechanism. MFDS introduced the requirements of natural and organic cosmetics in 2018 to regulate the industry and provide consumers with safe products. Nowadays, the Korean natural/organic cosmetic mark is acknowledged by more Korean consumers.
