Cosmetic and ingredients

You can advertise cosmetics and cosmetic ingredients on Yandex.Direct.

Text ads will automatically have a warning added: “Contraindications apply. Consult a doctor.”. The text of the warning does not depend on the content of the specific ad and cannot be changed. You must add this warning to image ads yourself. More information about warnings.

Your ads must correspond to the legislation of the countries where you want to serve them.

According to the law “On advertising” and Yandex placement policy, certain documents must be provided.

When should documents be sent?

You can send documents at any time after your ads have been sent for moderation. If ads are rejected due to an absence of required documents, then they will be re-evaluated after documents are submitted. If your ads pass moderation, they will be accepted for display. If additional information is required, we will contact you.

Required documents

The set of documents required for ads for specific cosmetics depends on the content of your ad:

  • If the ad indicates that the cosmetics advertised can be used in cosmetology, the documents listed in the Pharmacies and medicine section are required.

  • If you are advertising cosmetic ingredients, you must provide either a copy of the certificate/declaration of compliance for the ingredients or a copy of the state registration certificate.

  • If the document states that the cosmetics contain hyaluronic acid, then you must submit a copy of the declaration of compliance for the advertised substance that confirms the presence of hyaluronic acid.

If you are advertising products and services across several categories (for example, cosmetic ingredients and medical services), you must provide documents for each of them.
