Cosmetic Product Registration South Korea

Cosmetic Product Registration South Korea - Overview

South Korea is known for its innovation in the cosmetic products industry. The steady demand for cosmetic products in the face of global economic fluctuations reflects the strength of the South Korean Market. However, with reputed product manufacturers competing vehemently, finding a breakthrough in the market and decoding the Regulatory perspectives of the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) can be challenging.

The MFDS South Korea classifies beauty products into three (03) categories:

  1. General Cosmetics
  2. Functional Cosmetics
  3. Quasi-drugs

Additionally, it is mandatory for all domestic and foreign cosmetic products to label the packages in the Korean language as per the Korean Cosmetic Products Act (KCPA), 2000. According to the Korean Cosmetics Act, quality testing must be conducted by lot/batch. However, the testing required for products differs based on the category of the cosmetic product.
