To help cosmetic manufacturers satisfy the requirements for sale of a cosmetic, Health Canada developed the Hotlist – an administrative list of substances that are restricted and prohibited in cosmetics.

The March 2011 Cosmetic Ingredient Hotlist replaces the June 2010 version.  To view the changes made, please refer to the document entitled “March 2011 changes to the Cosmetic Ingredient Hotlist” on Health Canada’s website.

Health Canada welcomes stakeholders to submit comments on proposed changes to the Hotlist. Entries for ingredients are proposed to be added to the Cosmetic Ingredient Hotlist as a restriction or a prohibition via consultation process.
