Thailand Updates Its Cosmetics Regulations

On October 19, Thailand announced changes to its cosmetics regulations that went into effect the next day.

The announcement covered three notifications. In the first two, the Thai Ministry of Public Health updated the list of preservatives permitted in cosmetics and the list of prohibited substances. The third requires companies to include warning labels on products that contain specific preservatives.

The new list now contains 56 permitted preservatives. It replaces the previous list, published in 2017. The list of prohibited substances was initially published in 2016. The lists are written in English, but the usage thresholds and specific requirements are in Thai.

In its approach to the selection of substances, Thailand used the ASEAN Cosmetic Directive (ACD). Nevertheless, it will take some time to implement the ACD in national law.
