EnterCo has sorted out some faqs related to the latest cosmetic labeling regulations on net content.
How to mark net content on the cosmetic labels?
The labeling of net content consists of three parts: 净含量 net content (in Chinese), numbers, and legal units of measurement (or counting units expressed in Chinese). Quantitative packaged goods marked with net content in terms of length, area, and counting units can be exempted from the three Chinese characters of "净含量" and only marked with numbers and legal units of measurement (or counting units expressed in Chinese). For cosmetics that represent their content through counting, the display surface of product packaging can be labeled with numbers and Chinese units of counting, such as using "片", "张", "枚", etc.
How to mark the net content of set packaging products?
If multiple quantitatively packaged goods of the same type are included in the same packaging, the net content and total number of individual quantitatively packaged goods should be marked, or the total net content should be marked.
If multiple quantitatively packaged goods of different types are included in the same packaging, the net content of each piece and the number of pieces of each type of quantitative packaging product should be marked, or the total net content of each type of quantitative packaging product should be marked separately.
