On the Vietnamese market, cosmetics are classified as substances or preparations intended to be used on external parts of the human body—i.e., skin, hair, nails, lips and external genital organs; and/or teeth and oral mucosa—with the main purpose to clean, perfume, change the appearance or form, adjust body odor, or protect or keep the body in good condition. Such products must satisfy the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) guidelines for the disclosure of product features. Products requiring this disclosure are: creams including sunscreens, self-tanners, and anti-aging and whitening products; face masks; tinted liquids, pastes and powders; all powders; bath/deodorant soaps; perfumes; bath products; hair removal products; deodorants and antiperspirants; shaving products; makeup and makeup removal products for the face and eyes; oral care; and nail care products.
