Since 2013, U.S. brands have enjoyed a yearly export growth of cosmetics and personal care products to Central America. This sector accounted for over $190 million of U.S. products sold in the CAFTA-DR countries, which includes Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and the Dominican Republic. The region is an attractive market for U.S. companies due to rising consumer awareness of the aging process and few local manufacturers. In addition, the CAFTA-DR free trade agreement has significantly reduced import duties on almost all cosmetic products. Please join our experts from the U.S. Commercial Service and ICMAD, who will be joined by a local distributor, to learn more about the market trends, navigating the regulatory requirements, and much more.
