China's First Clean Beauty Standard Released

On July 10, 2022, the Guangdong Cosmetics Association released the first clean beauty standard. Based on the concepts of openness, transparency, and traceability, clean beauty should be responsible for human health and safety as well as sustainable development, treat animals kindly, and take social responsibility. The stakeholders shall strictly control the risks arising from design, production, packaging, storage, transportation, use, and other stages.

On July 10, 2022, the Guangdong Cosmetics Association released a new group standard, "T/GDCA 011-2022 Cosmetics—General Principle of Clean Beauty", which specifies clean beauty’s terms and definitions, basic principles, design, production, packaging, storage, use, recycling, and other requirements. 1 This is the first standard specifically for clean beauty in China's cosmetics industry and will be implemented on August 8, 2022.

It is worth noting that group standards refer to a series of voluntary standards established and/or adopted by professional associations or bodies, often prior to the formulation of relevant national standards and industrial norms.

Highlights of the Standard

1. The Standard provides a clear definition of "clean beauty" for the first time. Clean beauty refers to cosmetics that are safe and friendly to the environment and animals, with an open, transparent, and traceable life cycle.
