China NMPA Bans Cosmetics Using EGF or Medicinal Claims

China banned cosmetics from using EGF or making content/advertising claims using this ingredient. Label/advertisement claims using medical terminology such as “medicated cosmetics” or “medical skin care products” are banned in China. There is no validity period for imported non-special use cosmetics, but RP is required to report the production and import of cosmetics, market sales and adverse reactions monitoring condition using the online filing system every year.

On January 10, 2019, National Medical Products Administration released the first collection of answers to the common questions about cosmetics supervision and management. The answers specify that “medicated cosmetics” and “medical skin care products” are banned claims. EGF is also banned from use in cosmetics including any labeling/advertising. Common questions about imported non-special use cosmetics are also answered in the collection.
