NMPA’s attitude can be summarized in two aspects:
1. NMPA encourages companies to further strengthen cooperation with scientific research institutes, and indeed improve cosmetic R&D capability;
2. Meanwhile, NMPA firmly opposes companies using “medical innovation” as a gimmick to promote cosmetics. Companies should not use medical terms when promoting cosmetics, so as not to mislead consumers that products have medical efficacies.
“Cosmetics are closely related to dermatology. We encourage the cooperation among companies, hospitals, and scientific research institutes to develop more competitive cosmetics for consumers to solve skin problems,” During the panel discussion, Qi said.
