Whether it’s for your hygiene or beauty regimen, cosmetic products are a big part of your daily life. Learn about them and how to be a smart consumer.
Cosmetic products are defined as any substance or preparation that is intended to be placed in contact with the various external parts of the human body (epidermis, hair, nails, lips, around the eyes and external genital organs) or with the teeth and mouth, with a view exclusively or mainly to cleaning them, perfuming them, changing their appearance, correcting body odours, protecting them or keeping them in good condition.
In Singapore, the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) oversees the safety issues linked to cosmetic products.
