The Philippines: Firms urged to comply with cosmetic labeling, packaging requirements

Philippine cosmetic companies are advised to ensure their notified products meet the labeling and packaging requirements stipulated under the Asean Cosmetic Directive.

 

In a webinar, Maria Lynette Macabeo, Food Drug Regulation Officer II at Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-Center for Cosmetics Household/Urban Hazardous Substances Regulation and Research, said the directive’s Appendix II identified what comprises labeling, immediate packaging, and outer packaging.

 

She said labeling is the information written or printed or graphic matter on the immediate or outer packaging and any form of leaflets; immediate packaging is the container or other form of packaging immediately in contact with the cosmetic product; while the outer packaging refers to where the immediate packaging is placed.

 

Macabeo said the Asean cosmetic labeling guidelines include product content in weight or volume, brand and product name of the cosmetic product and its function, batch number,  manufacturing/expiry date of the product in clear terms, and country of manufacture.
