Being ranked among the world’s highest per capita spenders on beauty products, Dubai is stated to be growing into one of the top beauty and personal care markets. With reference to the import & export of cosmetic products, the government of Dubai issues a mandatory regulation regarding Registering Cosmetic Products in Dubai. The regulation applies to all cosmetics products manufactured industrially and placed in the Dubai market wherein the manufacture, packaging, distribution, and trade of cosmetic products should be first registered with the Dubai Municipality.

What Is Product Registration?
The primary concern of implementing the cosmetic registration is consumer safety wherein the process allows the CPSS (Consumer Products Safety Section) to evaluate the safety of cosmetic products when applying on skin, hair, or any exposed body part. However, with due registration, no cosmetic product will be manufactured, imported, exported, advertised, sold, or distributed in Dubai without registration. Most importantly, the registration of a cosmetic product is valid only for 5 years.

Why Registering Cosmetic Products in Dubai?
To ensure consumer safety and product quality, the paradigm of cosmetic registration in the UAE is initiated to restrict the import-export of fake and harmful products in the domestic markets. According to the survey, the Dubai Municipality found some harmful chemicals in the test samples of face masks, perfume, toothpaste, and other cosmetic products. However, these daily products are used by many people. Thereby the existence of chemicals like lead, chromium, and arsenic might expose them to various health hazards soon.
Therefore, the major purpose of product registration in Dubai municipality is to control the entry of such chemical-based products into the market. It is a matter of fact that the municipality is framing policies for the long run. They would rather focus on inspection and random testing, in coordination with companies, factories, as well as with distributors.
