How Cosmetics Businesses can Export their Products to Indonesia

Consumer demand for beauty and personal care products continues to rise. Sales of $7,458 million are expected in 2021, with the industry growing at a 6.46 percent annual rate (CAGR 2021-25).

The Indonesian cosmetics sector has a lot of potential to attract international investors.

The success of the cosmetics industry may be gauged by the spending power of women, who remain the principal consumers. In Indonesia, the gender wage gap has shrunk to 23% as of February 2020.

Sovereign Department Instruments (SCI) investors are the biggest buyers of retail government bonds, which help pay for the Indonesian government’s budget.

Just one more indicator that Indonesian women are on the verge of financial self-sufficiency.

The Process

To register a cosmetic product, follow these steps:

  1. Only legitimate Indonesian enterprises are permitted to register cosmetics. Both manufacturers and distributors and importers must register with the government.

  3. In order to get your firm’s first user ID and password, you must submit an online form to the Indonesian Food and Drug Authority (Badan Pengawas Obat dan Makanan, BPOM) E-application with the appropriate supporting papers after you’ve determined which company to utilize for product registration.
  4. As long as the applicant’s information hasn’t changed, this application may be completed once. If any of the information about your business changes, you must file a data change notice or a readmission request.

What’s Next?

Once your business has been approved by BPOM Indonesia, you may begin the product registration procedure by following these steps:
