Firms exporting products from the United States (U.S.) are often asked by foreign governments or customers to supply a "certificate" as a required part of the process to export a product to their country. *The FDA does not require companies to obtain an export certificate, the agency isnot required by law to issue certificates for cosmetics, and does not issue certificates for cosmetics manufactured outside the U.S.If you export cosmetics, it is your responsibility tofollow U.S. laws and regulations, and to know the cosmetics requirements of the countries to which you export.Source: UN Comtrade
TheFDA works closely with the U.S. Customs and Border Protectionto monitor imports. Imported cosmetic products are subject to the same laws and regulations as those produced in the United States and are subject to review by the FDA at the time of entry. They must be safe for their intended uses and contain no prohibited ingredients, and all labeling and packaging must be informative and truthful, with the labeling information in English (or Spanish in Puerto Rico). Products that don’t comply with FDA laws and regulations are subject to refusal of admission into the country and must be brought into compliance (if feasible), destroyed, or re-exported. Among the most common reasons for import refusals of cosmetics are labeling violations, the illegal use of color additives, and the presence of poisonous or deleterious substances.Source: UN Comtrade
The two most important laws pertaining to cosmetics marketed in the United States are the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA). (read slide)FDA can take regulatory action through the Department of Justice in the federal court system if it has information to support that a cosmetic is adulterated or misbranded in orderto remove it from the market.They can request a federal district court to issue a restraining order against the manufacturer or distributor to prevent further shipment of the products and they can also seize the products.http://www.fda.gov/Cosmetics/default.htm
it bears or contains any poisonous or deleterious substance which could cause injury to users under the conditions of use prescribed in the labeling, or under customary and usual conditions of use [with an exception made for hair dyes];it consists of any filthy putrid, or decomposed substance;it has been prepared, packed, or held under unsanitary conditions that might cause it to become contaminated with filth, or cause it to be rendered injurious to health;its container is composed of any poisonous or deleterious substance which may render the contents injurious to health; orexcept for hair dyes, it bears or contains, a color additivewhich is unsafehttp://www.fda.gov/Cosmetics/default.htm
-its labeling is false or misleading; its label does not include all required information; the required information is not adequately prominent and conspicuous; its container is so made, formed, or filled as to be misleading; it is a color additive, other than a hair dye, that does not conform to applicable regulations; its packaging or labeling is in violation of an applicable regulation.-Under the authority of the FPLA, FDA requires an ingredient declaration to enable consumers to make informed purchasing decisions. Cosmetics that fail to comply are considered misbranded under FD&C.-Cosmetic firms are responsible for substantiating the safety of their products and ingredients before marketing. Failure to adequately substantiate the safety of a cosmetic product or its ingredients prior to marketing causes the product to be misbranded unless the following warning statement appears conspicuously on the principal display panel of the product's label: "Warning--The safety of this product has not been determined.”-A change in FDA's statutory authority over cosmetics would require Congress to change the law.http://www.fda.gov/Cosmetics/default.htm

Russia poised to become the number one European market and China or Brazil are likely to occupy the number two market in the world by ousting Japan; marketers clearly need to further secure their foothold in these key markets. China has seen a steady stream of activity, including the following recent deals:Numbers from 2008Asia-Pacific Markets-$91.5 billionEuropean-$147.3 billion29 percent of the cosmetics market Imports a significant portion J&J’s 2008 acquisition of Beijing Dabao CosmeticsBeiersdorf’s late 2007 purchase of C-BonsRussia-Eye Make Up

Natural products, such as botanical extracts, soy protein, and natural fats and oils, are expected to achieve healthy growth rates as their incorporation in various formulated products continues to increase.
