Personal Care Products Council Applauds Inclusion of Cosmetics Regulatory Reform in Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023

The Personal Care Products Council (PCPC) and its member companies applaud Congress for including legislation that modernizes federal regulatory oversight of cosmetics and personal care products and creates a comprehensive and uniform national framework for cosmetics regulation. The long-awaited legislation advances product safety and innovation for the science-driven beauty and personal care industry and reinforces consumer confidence.

“We greatly appreciate Chairwoman Patty Murray, Ranking Member Richard Burr, Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr., and Ranking Member Cathy McMorris Rodgers for their leadership. This truly historic moment took over a decade, bringing together a diverse group of stakeholders to support a contemporary approach to cosmetics oversight and further strengthen consumer trust in the products they use every day,” said PCPC President and CEO Lezlee Westine. “This landmark legislation would not have been possible without their leadership and commitment.”

PCPC Executive Vice President of Government Affairs Karin Ross added: “We entered this process advocating for well-crafted, science-based federal reforms to enhance our industry’s ability to innovate and to modernize regulation that has largely been unchanged for 80 years. These members of Congress guided that process. Thanks to their leadership, the Food and Drug Administration will have the necessary tools to ensure consistent regulation of cosmetics and personal care products.”

Consumer and product safety are top priorities for the beauty and personal care industry. PCPC looks forward to working with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and key stakeholders to implement this important legislation.
