Understanding Cosmetic Regulations in Turkey

Burcu Seven
Thursday , 20th Oct 2022

Turkey holds a position as the bridge between Asia and Europe where there is a high demand for cosmetics. Despite the covid 19, Turkey's cosmetic market grows 10% each year. Turkey’s cosmetic supervision is special. It adopts a declaration system for cosmetic products based on the manufacturer’s own statements. It has a different definition of "manufacturer" whose scope also includes the "importer". However, still, the cosmetic industry includes particular procedures for certification requirements.
