Breaking! China Releases the Inventory of Existing Cosmetic Ingredients in China 2021 (IECIC 2021)

The IECIC 2021 includes a total number of 8972 existing cosmetic ingredients in China. The most significant change made in the IECIC is the addition of ingredients’ highest historical use concentration, which provides an excellent reference for the safety assessment of cosmetics.

On April 30, 2021, China National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) finalized the Inventory of Existing Cosmetic Ingredients in China 2021 (IECIC 2021), which is one of the significant subsidiary regulations of Cosmetic Supervision and Administration Regulation (CSAR) and will come into force on May 1, 2021.

Introduction of IECIC

IECIC is a objective and comprehensive collection of ingredients that have been used in cosmetics produced and sold in China. It serves as the sole reference for determining the regulatory status of cosmetic ingredients. All ingredients excluded from the Inventory are deemed "new ingredients" and subject to mandatory pre-market registration or notification with the NMPA under new cosmetic regulations.

It was first introduced in 2014 and last updated in 2015. The IECIC 2015 encompasses a list of 8783 cosmetic ingredients.
