China Releases Supervision and Administration Provisions on Children's Cosmetics

10/27/2021 | 05:48am EST
China NMPA finalized the requirements for children's cosmetic products on October 8, 2021.
SAFEGUARDS | Cosmetics, Personal Care & HouseholdNO. 144/21

China's National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) issued Notice No. 123, Supervision and Administration Provisions on Children Cosmetics, on October 8, 2021. This newly released regulation consists of 22 articles. The followings requirements are highlighted:

  • Children's cosmetic products means products used for children under 12 years old with function of cleaning, moisturizing, body powder and UV protecting. Products with descriptions like 'applicable to the whole population', 'used by the whole family' and other similar wordings or presentations, which imply children as potential users of the product, shall be considered as children's cosmetics
  • Children's cosmetics shall be labeled with a mark stipulated by the NMPA on the display panel of the sales package. This mark is specifically required on children's cosmetics. Cosmetic products for use by other consumers do not need to be labelled with this mark. The mark will be released by NMPA later
  • Besides the general requirements for cosmetics, the warning 'used under adult supervision' preceded by 'warning' or 'caution' shall be included on the visual panel of packaging
  • The principle of formula design of children's cosmetics shall follow safety priority, efficacy, necessity and formula minimalism. New ingredients in the monitoring period, raw materials prepared by new technologies such as gene technology and nanotechnology, shall not be used
  • 'Food grade,' 'edible' or food related presentation (including its physical state, scent, appearance etc.) shall not be used in children's cosmetic products
  • This new regulation is applicable to toothpaste used for children

This new regulation will enter into force on January 1, 2022, with the exception of the new labeling requirements for children's cosmetic products - which will come into force on May 1, 2022.

From May 1, 2022, the notifier or registrant of children's cosmetic products shall follow the labeling requirements in this regulation. If the children's cosmetic products have been notified or registered before May 1, 2022, the notifier or registrant shall update the product label according to this new requirement before May 1, 2023.
