    Hi Jo, Some ingredients approved to use in Quasi-drugs (such as hair dye products) previously, but are prohibited in cosmetics regulation. As the products are classified as functional cosmetics, is it still allowed to use these ingredients? for how long? Do you know whether or not MFDS is going to revise the current cosmetics regulation for adopting these ingredients with certain conditions? Thanks.

    Thank you for your comments. The MFDS has revised its ingredients standards for functional cosmetics. Take hair dye products for example, the revised standards include those permitted ingredients for hair dye but only exclusive to use in hair dye products. Chemlinked has updated this news, you may refer to https://cosmetic.chemlinked.com/news/cosmetic-news/summary-korea-recent-ingredients-requirement-changes. Hope this will help. Regards.
