In China, prior to manufacture or import, all cosmetics (excluding domestic non-special use cosmetics) must undergo a registration process and require submission of complicated registration dossiers in order to obtain a license from CFDA. However, CFDA has announced a pilot implementation rule on a new filing management procedure which could simplify the registration process and save time for overseas brands. Several new rules on ingredients, labels, registration process, and production are also under revision.

Silicone polymers are used in a variety of personal care products. These polymers are produced from cyclic volatile methylsiloxanes (cVMS), such as D4 and D5. Since D4 and D5 are not fully removed during the manufacturing process, they can enter the environment via disposal of products that contain silicone polymers. In recent years, D4 and D5 have been associated with environmental concerns, despite a wealth of scientific data showing they do not pose a significant environmental risk.
