What is the difference between a cosmetic and a medical device ?

A cosmetic product is intended to be in contact with the superficial parts of the body, which means the external parts (like skin and external genitals), in order to clean them, perfume them, change their appearance, protect them, keep them in good condition or change the body odor.

Conversely, a medical device is intended to be in contact with internal genital organs in order to prevent, to treat or to reduce diseases and disorders like vaginal dryness, an injury, a handicap or a physiological process.
