A Collection of China Cosmetic National/Industry/Group Standards in 2021

In 2021, China’s Standardization Administration (SAC), State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR), and Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) released a series of national/industry standards pertaining to cosmetics and toothpaste. China's biggest cosmetic association—the China Association of Fragrance Flavor and Cosmetic Industries (CAFFCI), approved five group standards. Here ChemLinked compiled all these standards we believe to be worthy of your interest.
