Canadian Cosmetics Compliance


Background of Canadian Cosmetics Regulations

Canadian Cosmetics Compliance

In Canada, the import and sale of cosmetics are regulated by the Cosmetics Division of Health Canada, and the corresponding regulatory laws and regulations are the Food and Drugs Act and the Cosmetics Regulations. According to the regulations, cosmetics include any substance or mixture of substances used to cleanse, enhance, or alter the complexion, skin, hair, or teeth. They also include deodorants and perfumes. Any professionally manufactured beauty product sold in Canada is subject to cosmetic regulations.

Canada's cosmetic regulations provide detailed requirements for the manufacture, storage, labeling, packaging, distribution, and sale of cosmetic products. As required by the government, the labelling of cosmetics and any chemical substances found in cosmetics must comply with the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act and the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, respectively. Cosmetics that meet the relevant requirements can be legally imported into Canada for sale.
