NEW COSMETIC FORMS ARE ESTBLISHED TO BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT AT THE TIME OF REQUESTING MARKETING AUTHORIZATIONS
On April, the National Institute for the Vigilance of Medicine and Foods (Invima) endorsed resolution no. 1906 of the Andean Community, modifying resolution no. 797. This resolution incorporated a new list of cosmetic forms for obtaining the Obligatory Sanitary Notice (marketing authorization for cosmetics).
Cosmetics forms are defined as the final presentation of the cosmetic product, examples of which are: oil, aerosol, wax, gel cream, powder, and suspension, among others. And their categorization obeys to criteria such as the possible sanitary risk according to its nature and the type of process for its manufacture.
Substantial modifications or reformulations in the basic composition of a cosmetic product require a new NSO, and among the requirements for obtaining its declaration is the definition of the cosmetic form.
