    Detailed revisions are outlined below:

    Revisions on testing methods and standard

    1. For new functional cosmetic scope, adding testing methods and standards for ingredients

    To add testing methods and standards for ingredients used in antfhistamine, depilatory and acne agent.

    Add standard for agent used for testing.

    1. Further refining general rules on deposition masking agents

    To refine the definitions of deposition masking agents such as antfhistamine, gelata and pulveres (definitions of moisturizer, water aqua and body lotion).

    1. Adding "salt strength test" to the general testing methods
