Brazil Updates ‘Prohibited Cosmetic Substances List’

Prohibited Cosmetics Bottles Substance List

The National Health Surveillance Agency of Brazil (ANVISA) published the list of substances prohibited in cosmetic products, which took effect in August.

The 5 substances that have been added to the prohibition list are Isobutyl paraben, isopropyl paraben, quaternium-15, chloroacetamide, and chlorophene.

Relevant companies must ensure that their products do not contain these banned substances after August 11, 2024, which means they will be given a 36-month transition period.

This revision of the regulations is mainly to align with the EU CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008.
