Cosmetics include daily-use chemical products intended to be applied externally to parts of the human body— such as skin, hair, nails and lips—for the purposes of cleansing, protecting, beautifying or grooming.They are used by individuals to improve both appearance and well-being. Although once thought of as luxury products, most people now consider cosmetics a daily necessity. Thus, creating a sustainable cosmetics industry will help to improve people’s quality of living.

The Cosmetics Working Group consists of more than 70 members, including a large number of internationally well-known cosmetics brands with a diverse range of business models. The majority of members are industry leaders and have established research and development (R&D) as well as production facilities in China. Their expertise has been widely recognised by consumers and they have contributed significantly to cosmetics development in China. The cosmetics industry has also acted as a catalyst for other related industries, such as fine chemicals, packaging, logistics and advertising.

The Cosmetics Working Group aims to:
• present the interests of European cosmetics companies and facilitate information exchange among members, professional associations and regulatory bodies;
• promote sustainable and healthy development of China’s cosmetics industry, and contribute to the formation of an efficient, fair and transparent regulatory
environment; and
• ensure consumer safety.

European cosmetics companies possess cutting-edge technologies and extensive experience in quality management and safety assessment. A fully-opened market that allows both competition and cooperation between Chinese and European cosmetics companies will ensure that the domestic market becomes stronger, and provide Chinese consumers access to a variety of new and advanced products.
