    In recent years, as people gradually realize that ultraviolet rays are an important factor causing aging, facial wrinkles and skin cancer, users of sunscreen cosmetics are surging. At the same time, the regulation and supervision of sunscreen cosmetics are becoming increasingly strict. The sunscreen agent is the most frequently tested items. From May 2018 to 2019, China National Medical Products Administration issued 9 notices of non-complaint sunscreen cosmetics, totaling 158 batches.

In this webinar, Ms. Hedy He from ChemLinked will firstly analyze Chinese sunscreen cosmetics market, including consumers’ preferences, marketing strategies and market trends, then specify detailed sunscreen cosmetics regulations such as approved ingredients, testing and labeling requirements, finally offer advice on entering Chinese market.
