NIFDC Consults on Five Testing Methods for Cosmetics
Time:June 24,2016    Clicks:451

On May 26, China National Institutes for Food and Drug Control released 5 drafts about cosmetic testing methods for public consultation. The 5 drafts are:

  • Guidance for Evaluation Method for Preservative Effect of Cosmetics
  • Repeated Dose 28-Day Oral Toxicity Study
  • Skin Photoallergy Test
  • Testing Methods of Mustard and Cantharidin in Cosmetics
  • Teratogenicity Test

The drafts clearly specify the procedures to conduct the tests and the specific testing methods.

The biggest significance of their release is that the first three drafts fill the gap that China lacks the testing methods and the other two standardize the testing methods and conform to the actual development of Chinese cosmetic industry.

Comments can be conveyed to the NIFDC before June 2nd.
