From the current market trend in the Philippines, it is evident that the country is growing rapidly in the sector of cosmetics. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (formerly the Bureau of Food and Drugs) under the Department of Health, is responsible for regulating cosmetic products and ensuring the safety, purity, and quality of cosmetics in the Philippines market.
