IS IT A COSMETIC or NON-PRESCRIPTION NATURAL HEALTH PRODUCT?
One key difference between cosmetics and NHPs is that cosmetic products can only make aesthetic claims, while NHPs can make functional claims. Cosmetic products must notify Health Canada within 10 days of the sale, while NHPs require pre-market approval that takes 80-210 days.
