There is currently no regulation in Brazil regarding the registration and marketing of organic cosmetics.

The project (PLS 532/2015), which would regulate the registration and marketing of organic cosmetics, is one of the items on the agenda of the meeting of the CMA today, 14 June 2016.

According to the text, organic cosmetics must be made with materials produced in organic farming systems or derived from sustainable extraction processes and must not be harmful to local ecosystems.

The author of the bill, Senator Marta Suplicy, explains there is currently no regulation in Brazil regarding the registration and marketing of organic cosmetics, which is a disadvantage for the country in the global market.

According to senator Eduardo Amorim, rapporteur of the bill, this regulatory loophole may be prejudicial to consumers interested in buying organic cosmetics as the lack of definition for such products in Brazil may lead to misleading practices. Eduardo Amorim proposed several amendments regarding the definition of organic cosmetics.
