COSMETICS


LABEL AND INGREDIENT REVIEW

All cosmetic products must be labelled in compliance with the requirements of the Canadian Cosmetic Regulations. The 2004 Cosmetic Regulations introduced a requirement for declaration of ingredient listings on product labels, in accordance with prescribed declaration formats. Specific requirements are stated for compliance to International Nomenclature for Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI) and US requirements. MEDERA can review your ingredient listings to ensure INCI/US compliance.

It is important that therapeutic claims do not appear on the labels of cosmetic products or the product could be classified as a drug or natural health product.

Environmental assessment of new cosmetic ingredients may also be necessary under the New Substances Notification (NSN) Regulations of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act.

MEDERA will review your cosmetic labels to ensure that all claims are permissible for cosmetics and that all required information is present on labels and that ingredient listings are provided in the required formats.
