Indonesia, with a population of 270 million, is the largest market in Southeast Asia, and has a thriving cosmetics industry in which foreign products are very popular. Due to the vast consumer base and increasing income levels, the Indonesian beauty and personal care market has already reached 7 billion USD and is still in rapid expansion. Local brands alone cannot meet the demands for beauty products from the growing middle class, and the popularity of social media has enabled young consumers to quickly discover new brands from around the world, increasing demand.

Despite this, there is no dominant cosmetics brand in the Indonesian market, presenting more business opportunities for brands looking to enter Indonesia. However, this huge market potential coexists with complex compliance requirements. The Indonesian FDA (BPOM) requires cosmetics to be approved for registration, and a certificate SKI Post Border is mandatory for exporting cosmetics. To navigate stakeholders through the legal framework, requirements, and restrictions of exporting cosmetic products to Indonesia, leading Southeast Asian law firm Tilleke & Gibbins, in collaboration with ChemLinked, will host a webinar to address these issues and assist companies in their efforts to comply with local laws.

During this webinar, Ms. Irene Djalim, manager of the regulatory affairs department at Tilleke & Gibbins’Jakarta office, will provide an overview of the regulatory landscape for cosmetics registration in Indonesia, cover the procedures and requirements for cosmetics registration, address advertisement controls, and address the practical considerations for cosmetic operators looking to export to Indonesia. Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions and receive answers live.
