China FDA Draft Rule: No More Animal Tests Needed For Many Cosmetics

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

Firms that manufacture ordinary-use cosmetics in China would be able to support product safety with non-animal data under draft rules issued by the country's food and drug authority Nov. 5. Among other proposed changes, whitening skin-care products would be reclassified as special-use cosmetics, a move likely influenced by Kao Corporation’s recall of Kanebo brighteners due to widespread adverse reactions.
