Recently, the national drug regulation bureau released information to better educate the consumers of the safety issue of sun block products.
According to the national law, the sun screen products belong to the category of “cosmetics for special use”. All relevant products should be checked specifically by the national designated institutions to check the product’s bacteria, toxicology, its safety and function for human use. The product should not enter the market if it has not yet reviewed and approved by relevant authorities.
Both domestic and imported sun screen products will be given approval numbers after being checked by national regulators. The customers can check for the relevant information by downloading the app or “cosmetics regulation” and look for the specific products by the approval number. (Source: fashion.ce.cn)
