CCTV recently exposed that claims and advertisments of children’s cosmetics in the markets such as “healthy”, “non-toxic”, “water-soluble formula”, “natural ingredients”, “mild and non-irritating” and “preservative-free” do not actually comply with relevant cosmetics regulations. Some of the best-selling children’s cosmetics on the market are problem products and fake cosmetics. 

According to“Guidelines for the Application and Evaluation of Children’s Cosmetics”, all cosmetics that are claimed applicable to children should be declared as children’s cosmetics in accordance with the requirements. For cosmetics that are not applied for children, the product packaging shall not be displayed or implied in any patterns or other forms as children’s cosmetics.
