Cosmetics industries are getting expanded gradually by the growing needs for the beauty and development of technology. Nowadays it has been widely accepted among the dermatologists that they would be eager to prescribe and recommend cosmetics to get therapeutic effect in aid to resolve the skin problem. Cosmetics’ labels and advertisements are important means for companies to promote sales as well as for consumers and medical experts to choose the products. For this reason, Korea Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (KMFDS) establishes the guidelines related to cosmetics’ labels and advertisements for the consumers from the exaggerative advertisement on cosmetics. In this study we introduce the detailed guideline of cosmetics’ Labels and Advertisements and Regulations and analyzed the states abided by the company. Including domestic and imported products handling in Konkuk university hospital, total 12 companies and 68 cosmetic products were investigated by the ‘Guideline for Cosmetics’ labels and Advertisements’ established by KMFDS. The 67% of the products were using more than one word or phrase prohibited by the guidelines. It is higher rate than expected given that the cosmetics business related to clinics are less competitive on the advertisement than general cosmetic business field. Above all the guidelines should be complied more strictly by the cosmetic advertisement, but also need to consider whether the present guidelines are well reflecting the reality. Medical experts who deal the cosmetics should be aware of guidelines so that recommend proper cosmetics for the patients and not dazzled by the exaggerative advertisement.
