CTFA Applauds Increased Funding for FDA Office of Cosmetics and Colors

The U.S. House Committee on Appropriations, late yesterday, approved a $2 million increase for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Office of Cosmetics and Colors. Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Fragrance Association (CTFA) President and CEO Pamela Bailey issued the following statement praising the committee’s efforts for an increase that will enhance the office’s capacity for enforcement, oversight and development of global safety standards for personal care products.

"We are pleased that the House Committee on Appropriations voted to increase FDA funding for consumer protection. Our products literally touch nearly every American every day. Through strong regulatory oversight, made possible by this $2 million increase, consumer confidence in the safety of their products will remain high.

"Consumer safety is the number one priority of the more than 1,000 cosmetic and personal care product companies. Over the years, cosmetic and personal care product companies have worked with FDA to establish a unique partnership in which companies go beyond the requirements of the law to provide additional safety and technical resources and information.

"Our strong partnership with FDA has been put at risk because the Office of Cosmetics and Colors has shrunk to an insufficient level. This increase will enhance consumer protections and provide the cosmetics office with much needed inspectors and compliance officers.

"Consumers depend on safe products that are available and consistently regulated across the globe. While FDA has long been the gold standard in cosmetics regulation in the U.S., without adequate funding the FDA may not have the resources to participate in meetings with regulatory officials around the world. This funding increase will allow critical FDA participation in international discussions to develop the best and most encompassing global protections and regulations for consumers everywhere."
