Children's products labelling cosmetic products

On the 1st of December 2021, China’sNational Medical Products Administration  (NMPA) published a special label for cosmetics that are intended for use by children under 12 years old.

From 1 May 2022, newly registered children’s cosmetics must attach the logo. If the cosmetic is already registered or filed when the notification is published, companies must update their labels before 1 May 2023.  

According to the requirements, the label must be at least 1cm wide if the outer surface area of a product is smaller than 100cm2, while if it is larger, then the label must be at least 2cm wide.

Children’s cosmetics are defined as cosmetics made for children under 12 years old. NMPA defines children’s cosmetics as those products that have functions such as cleansing, moisturizing, and sun protection. China’s NMPA announced children's cosmetic working plan in October which is planned to come into force on January 1, 2022.
