Overview

The Mexican cosmetics market is among the top revenue grossers globally. With growing demand for cosmetics among the country’s youth, market projection suggests rise in demand for cosmetics in the region. Cosmetics can be marketed in Mexico, after notifying to the Federal Commission for Protection against Sanitary Risks (COFEPRIS).

With the recent change in the cosmetics regulations in cosmetics, it is no longer mandatory for cosmetic products to be sent to COFEPRIS for classification. As the registration process isn’t as stringent anymore so cosmetics can just be notified to COFEPRIS by including the product in the notice of operation and applying for the importation permit in order to import the product. Challenges concerning product classification and formulation review should also be addressed early on to ensure Regulatory compliance.
