China Implements Amended Cosmetic Prohibited Ingredient Inventories: 24 Newly Prohibited Ingredients Including Cannabidiol (CBD)

The main amendments include adding 24 prohibited ingredients, amending the names and CAS numbers of prohibited ingredients, classifying and merging prohibited drug ingredients. From May 28, 2021, cosmetic registrants and notifiers are not allowed to produce or import products containing prohibited ingredients stipulated in the new inventories. Among the 24 newly prohibited ingredients, CBD and three other Cannabis Sativa derived ingredients are included, which means that CBD cosmetics are prohibited from being produced and imported in China.

On Jan. 22, 2021, China opened a public consultation on the draft amended Inventory of Prohibited Ingredients for Cosmetics and Inventory of Prohibited Plant (Animal) Ingredients for Cosmetics. Based on the collected public opinions, on May 28, National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) released and implemented the finalized Inventory of Prohibited Ingredients for Cosmetics and Inventory of Prohibited Plant (Animal) Ingredients for Cosmetics. 1

These two new inventories replaced the previous inventories of prohibited cosmetic ingredients and were included in the corresponding chapters of Safety and Technical Standards for Cosmetics (STSC).
