South Korea Bans Atopy-Relieving Claims on Functional Cosmetics

The category name of “functional cosmetics helpful in alleviating the skin dryness caused by atopy” is amended into “functional cosmetics helpful in restoring the skin barrier function to relieve the skin itching”. Claims related to "atopy" are forbidden from using in functional cosmetics.

On August 5, 2020, MFDS issued and implemented the revised Enforcement Rule of Cosmetics Act [1]. As per the amendments published, the previous functional cosmetics category name "functional cosmetics helpful in alleviating the skin dryness caused by atopic skin" is changed into "functional cosmetics helpful in restoring the skin function to relieve the skin itching". By deleting the expression of "atopy", which is likely to mislead consumers into thinking the cosmetics are medicines, the competent authority reinforced the management of functional cosmetics claims.
