Cosmetics Regulatory Support in Mexico


The Mexican cosmetics market is amongst the top revenue grossers globally. With a growing demand for cosmetic products in the country’s youth, the Mexican market projection suggests a rise in demand for such products.

There is no need for Mexico cosmetic registration or cosmetic notification with the Federal Commission for Protection against Sanitary Risks (COFEPRIS) before the commercialization of cosmetics in Mexico. Nevertheless, it is necessary to meet the Regulatory compliance requirements. Therefore, one should address the challenges pertaining to the formulation and label compliance, including product claims in the early stages. For the sale and distribution of cosmetic products in Mexico, foreign manufacturers must appoint a local representative/legal representative (LR) to obtain a Notice of Operation and an import permit from the COFEPRIS.

With a dedicated global delivery center in Mexico, Freyr has a strong foothold in handling cosmetic product regulations. Freyr assists manufacturers by providing Regulatory Intelligence services that can direct them in making product choices suitable to the local interests. Freyr’s other Regulatory offerings for cosmetic products in Mexico include obtaining the Notice of Operation, cosmetic formulation review, cosmetic label review, cosmetic claims review, and getting an import permit for continued compliance.
