Is my product a cosmetic?

Nearly all ingredients in cosmetic products are regulated as industrial chemicals. Answer the following questions to determine whether your product is a cosmetic, or a therapeutic good regulated by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). If it's a cosmetic, then you must register your business with us.

Note: In Australia, you do not register cosmetic products or ingredients in products.

Before you start, read our guidance about the differences between cosmetics and therapeutic goods.
