Proposed changes to cosmetics regulations open for stakeholder commentMarch 21, 2023
The proposed Regulations Amending Certain Regulations Concerning the Disclosure of Cosmetic Ingredients have been published by the federal government in Canada Gazette Part I. The proposed regulations center around introducing a requirement to disclose certain fragrance allergens on cosmetic labels.
For cosmetics sold in small packages, it is proposed to add flexibility to disclose ingredients, including fragrance allergens, on a website. Under the proposed regulations, the provisions related to the disclosure of fragrance allergens would come into force two years after the date they are registered. All other provisions would come into force six months after the date of registration. We encourage interested members to undertake a full review of the proposed regulations and reach out with any comments or questions you may have to inform our submission to Health Canada.
