Cosmetic Labelling Review

Plastic tubes with yellow labelsAll 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 European Union (EU) requirements. DSA can review your ingredient listings to ensure INCI/EU compliance.

DSA 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. 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.
