Most ingredients used in Australian cosmetics are classed as industrial chemicals, and must be pre-approved by NICNAS before introduction to the Australian market.
NICNAS maintains a list (the Australian Inventory of Chemical Substances, AICS) of chemicals permitted for use in cosmetic products. Before selling a cosmetic in Australia, applicants must ensure that all ingredients in the formula are present on the AICS and that the product complies with any ingredient-specific restrictions mentioned on the AICS. Poison scheduling, quarantine, and other import issues may also apply. Only trained professionals should review and validate formulations, and NHP Consulting can assess the ingredients in your formula to identify any ingredients not currently approved for use in Australian cosmetics as well as highlight any specific conditions of use/sale required for your product.
NHP Consulting will provide all regulatory documentation to achieve market compliance for the Australian marketplace.
