  • Description:
    A Japanese company specialized in the analysis of cosmetic products, is offering its services to cosmetic manufacturers and/or brand holders who are interested in exporting cosmetic products from Europe to the Japanese market.

    When exporting cosmetics to Japan, all products must meet the standards for cosmetics in Japan outlined by the Japanese law and regulations. The party checking to ensure that these regulations are met must also be licensed to do so. More than half of the distributors in Japan do not possess the necessary license, and thus cannot perform these checks.

    The company possesses the license required by the Japanese Pharmaceutical Affairs Law to commercially import cosmetics into Japan. Their laboratories are registered with the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare and are licensed to perform the regulatory compliance checks of cosmetic products before market entry.

    The company also provides consultation and offers support to manufacturers in order to meet the strict standards for cosmetics in Japan. They can also act as a proxy between the foreign manufacturer and its Japanese distributor to prepare the market entry.

    An outsourcing or service agreement will be achieved with interested partners.

    Please note that this is not an offer to act as a distributor directly, nor a service to find a distributor for the EU company.

    The company provides a unique one-stop total service system from formulation checks, up through product registration with the government and import agent services before the product arrives on the Japanese market.

    They hold a wide portfolio and range of experience, having offered Pharmaceutical Affairs Law-support to around 30 prominent cosmetic manufacturers and brands.
