Under Cosmetics Supervision and Administration Regulations (CSAR) issued in 2020, cosmetics are divided into special cosmetics and ordinary cosmetics. Companies who plan to place cosmetics on the Chinese market must apply for the registration or filing with the NMPA or provincial MPA to get approval license or filing certificate. Toothpaste will be regulated as ordinary cosmetics. The toothpaste filer can claim the function of preventing cavities, inhibiting dental plaque, resisting dentine sensitivity, and reducing gingival problems after the efficacy evaluation in terms of the national and industrial standards.
