Sell Your Skincare in Canada Legally

If you're already making and selling your cosmetics (skincare, haircare, makeup, bath bombs, etc), have you registered them with Health Canada?

Here are the steps YOU NEED TO take.

Notifying Health Canada - Submit your Cosmetic Notification Forms through Health Canada

Before you sell, or up to 10 days after your first sale, make sure to submit the cosmetic notification forms to Health Canada. This may seem intimidating, but don't be discouraged. this is simply information about your company and its products.
You will need your company info and a list of all your products and their ingredients. Make sure to have the INCI names of your ingredients, and the percentages of each ingredient in the final product.
Don't worry if you forget something, you can amend the form after it is submitted. You will hear back from Health Canada in a couple of months.

Label your products properly

Health Canada requires certain information be on the labels like the weight, ingredients in INCI, and your contact info. Visit the Cosmetic Labelling Requirements in Canada site here.

Designing appealing packaging and labels is also important! Get inspiration from other products in the same same, or in totally different industries.
