China suitable ingredients | Formulating for China

China has long been a market of interest to many manufacturers. However, with numerous cosmetic ingredient inventory lists available there has been a lot of confusion over which ingredients can be used. For cosmetics to be produced and sold in China, the ingredients should be listed in the Inventory of Existing Cosmetic Ingredients in China (IECIC). This is the reference for determining the regulatory status of cosmetic ingredients. The easiest way to navigating the IECIC inventory is by exploring the Product Finder on our website now allows you to filter results according to IECIC listing. If you want even more inspiration, you can also find out China-suitable formulations in the Formulation Library section.
