Cosmeceutical in China

The claim “cosmeceutical药妆”is strictly forbidden in China since 2019. However, cosmeceutical can still be sold in China as general cosmetics. In the meantime, functional skincare, a claim that is similar to cosmeceutical, has been strongly trending recently.

Cosmeceuticals are products that have both cosmetic and therapeutic (medical or drug-like) effects. Cosmeceuticals is a globally popular industry, with different names in different countries, such as active cosmetics in Europe and functional cosmetics in South Korea. Regulations about this sector are also vague in many countries. Japan is a country that has legally established a sector called "quasi-drug" between medical drugs and cosmetics, thereby giving "cosmeceutical" legal status and special supervision.
