Well your product would have to go through the Health Science Authority testing for health and safety of medicine, before you could sell it.

http://www.hsa.gov.sg/publish/hsaportal/en/home.html

If it is your own formula, then you really do need to get a patent on it. The simplest form of protection, in case someone tries to steal your idea is to write it out with full date and year that you made the product, seal it in an envelope, take it to the post office and ask them to date stamp the back several times along the seal. You then post the letter back to yourself. Lock it away for safe keeping in case you need to go to court to prove, that you had made the product on such and such a day.

You need minimum 5 posts before you can send a PM. If you want you can explain to me in a PM after you have secured, your details in an envelope. To actually get a patent done does cost money and first of all you need to ensure your product is safe to be used as a medicine. You will need all scientific documentation to prove these so called facts. If it is to be sold as medicine.

Otherwise you will have to bring it in as a health suppliment, which is then through the AVA and not HSC.

I can do the research depending on what it is you have.

Thanks a lot!

Your post does help me; however, I have some questions:
First, my product is health supplement, not considered as"medicine". Thus I have to contact with AVA. What is AVA anyway? Where can I find it?
Second, I read some medical books about traditional plants that can cure some diseases. After researching the information from those books, I found other uses from these plants. Then I did my research and made my own products. Is it considered plagiarism?
Just for curiosity, are you S'porean or Briton? Do you work in medical aspect?
Thanks again.

Something smells fishy here. In one post you claim you are a 17 year old student here on a scholarship, yet in this thread you claim you are a Vietnamese Pharmacist.

Some clarification might be in order now.

Create a new account for yourself and then you won't have us trying to figure out who we are talking to. Much easier that way. Then you only have to remember who is logged in.
