Are you interested in venturing into the world of cosmetics sales on Amazon?

As an Amazon seller, you'll tap into a vast market, with millions of potential customers browsing the platform daily for a wide array of products, including cosmetics. However, diving into selling makeup, skincare, body care, or haircare items on Amazon requires careful consideration and adherence to certain requirements.

Why Does Amazon Have Strict Requirements for Cosmetics?

Cosmetics directly impact users' skin and well-being. To safeguard its reputation and ensure customer safety, Amazon implements stringent regulations for health and beauty products sold on its platform.

How Does Amazon Regulate Cosmetics?

Amazon regulates cosmetics through gated subcategories within the Beauty and Personal Care category. If you wish to sell in these categories, you'll need to undergo several verification steps, such as providing FDA registration proof, a manufacturer invoice, GMP certificate, and product safety testing.

Do You Need to Register Cosmetics with the FDA?

While FDA registration isn't mandatory for cosmetics manufacturers, however, following the discontinuation of the Voluntary Cosmetic Registration Program (VCRP) in March 2023, the registration of cosmetic product facilities and product listing has become mandatory under MoCRA, the Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act. MoCRA is set to take full effect on July 1st, 2024.

Therefore, relevant stakeholders and businesses must plan and prepare for facility registration and product listing in advance. It's required for selling on Amazon to uphold customer safety standards.

While the approval process may vary, providing the requested materials should lead to successful approval. Stay informed about evolving cosmetics regulations, such as the recent MoCRA updates, to ensure compliance and success in selling cosmetics on Amazon.
