This questionnaire asks you 4 questions to help you work out if we consider your product to be a cosmetic.

  • Where the product will be used.
  • What the product does to the human body.
  • Why people use your product.
  • If any of your ingredients are on a list of poisons and medicines, the Poisons Standard.

Depending on your answers, we'll tell you if your product is a cosmetic or isn't a cosmetic. If it's a cosmetic, we regulate the ingredients.

We'll give you instructions about:

  • your obligations with AICIS so you can legally import or manufacture (introduce) your cosmetic ingredients
  • who to contact to help you find out your other obligations for your product
