Trademark Class 3: Cosmetics and Cleaning Substances

According to NICE Classification, Trademark Class 3 is opted to register a trademark for Soaps; Perfumery, and Essential oils, Cosmetics, Hair Lotions; and Dentifrices.

The NICE Classification was established in 1957 by NICE Agreement, and it divides marks into 45 different classes by Goods and Services (Classes 1-34 for Goods and Classes 35-45 for Services). The purpose of these classifications is to allow users to seek trademark goods or services into classes most appropriate to their business.

TM Class 3 includes cosmetics and cleaning preparations, including bleaching preparations and other substances for laundry use; cleaning, polishing, scouring and abrasive preparations; soaps; perfumery, essential oils, cosmetics, hair lotions; and dentifrices.

Why Should We Opt For TM Class 3?

You would choose Trademark Class 3 if you were registering any of these types of goods:

  • Deodorants for human beings or animals
  • Room fragrance preparations
  • Sanitary preparations being toiletries

You would not use Trademark Class 3 if you were registering for:

Related Classes

A related trademark class is one that is related to another class; this is due to the Indian Trademark Office (ITO) has determined that applicants registering within Class 3 may register in these other classes too.

If you are not sure while choosing Class 3 for your product, you also consider the following “Related Classes”: Class 5- Pharmaceuticals, Class 21- Household Utensils, Class 35- Advertising and Business Services, Class 42- Science and Technology Services, Class 44- Medical and Vet Services.

Examples of Class 3 marks includes DOVE under Class 3, BIOTHERM under Class 3 and Class 5, BIOLAGE under Class 3 and Class 35. 

Trademark Registration fees also vary on bases of the Class system. You must pay a separate registration fee for each class of goods and services that you want to register. For instance, if you are going to register a trademark for Hardware in Class 6 and Software for Class 9, you should pay two separate fees.

It is necessary to choose the correct class at the time of registering a trademark, if you register a trademark in the wrong class, you must start the registration process from the beginning.
