With the implementation of the Cosmetics Supervision and Administration Regulations (CSAR), the original special-purpose cosmetics for hair growth are no longer managed as special cosmetics, and "anti-hair loss" special cosmetics have been added. According to National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) statistics, in the first half of 2023 from January to June, a total of 17 domestic anti-hair loss cosmetics completed registration, and no imported anti-hair loss cosmetics obtained registration certificates.
EnterCo brings you an in-depth understanding of the anti-hair loss cosmetic registration data in the first half of 2023.
Overview of newly registered domestic anti-hair loss cosmetics
Among the 17 newly registered products, there are 12 rinse-off cosmetics (anti-hair loss shampoo) and 5 leave-on cosmetics (anti-hair loss serum). Compared with the first half of 2022 (a total of 26 anti-hair loss cosmetics completed registration), the registration number decreased by about 35% year-on-year.
Production mode and place of origin
In terms of production mode, domestic anti-hair loss cosmetics are mainly produced by the registrant themselves, with only two products choosing OEM/ODM production mode, accounting for approximately 12% of the total.
From the perspective of origin, Guangdong accounts for about 71% of the total, occupying a dominant position.
Commonly used ingredients of domestic anti-hair loss cosmetics
Efficacy ingredients: Among the 17 newly registered products, the used anti-hair loss ingredients are all platycladus orientalis leaf extract.
Plant ingredients: The commonly used plant ingredients include panax ginseng root extract, polygonum multiflorum extract, etc. Although these ingredients cannot directly serve as anti-hair loss ingredients, they have complementary effects.
According to statistics, China has 250 million people suffering from hair loss, and anti-hair loss has gradually become a top priority for young people, making anti-hair loss products a popular demand. It is predicted that the market size of anti-hair loss products in China will grow to 18.393 billion yuan by 2030. However, the high threshold of anti-hair loss products and the long registration period have led to a certain market gap for anti-hair loss cosmetics in China. With a high pass rate and short registration period, EnterCo can help you quickly seize the anti-hair loss market in China.
