Overview

Growing interest for personal care and increasing disposable incomes set the market growth of cosmetics in Australia on high. Cosmetics in Australia are classified as the industrial chemicals and are regulated by the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) per the Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Act 1989 (ICNA Act). If the product’s primary function is sunscreen then such product is regulated under Therapeutic Goods and Administration (TGA).

The cosmetic market in Australia is driven by innovation which needs the manufacturers to align with current trends. Lack of such knowledge may prove challenging while trying to gain market lead. Any deviation from approved ingredient list and formulation techniques might result in rework and product cancellation in some cases, both of which will affect the brand value and revenue.

Freyr’s Regulatory experts assist in ingredient analysis to make sure the product contains only listed and allowed ingredients.
