COSMETICS


PRODUCT ASSESSMENT AND CLASSIFICATION

Cosmetics fall under the Food and Drugs Act and its Cosmetic Regulations. Cosmetic products are required to comply with Health Canada's mandatory notification process, safety of ingredients and products, and product labelling.

While the regulations governing cosmetics are relatively straightforward there are potential pitfalls, particularly in the areas of proper classification and appropriate claims. MEDERA's experience, together with our ongoing relationships with cosmetic trade associations and government agencies, keeps us ahead of the curve with respect to any cosmetic regulatory affairs.

Our services in this area include:

  • Cosmetic ingredient reviews
  • Cosmetic label reviews
  • Cosmetic claim and advertising reviews
  • Cosmetic Notification Forms
  • Advice on cosmetic GMPs

MEDERA offers a full range of regulatory solutions to assist firms in complying with the requirements of Health Canada. Our specialists can also advise you regarding the advantages and disadvantages of selling your product as a cosmetic as opposed to a drug or a natural health product (NHP).
