For more information, visit ICMAD RAISES CONCERNS ABOUT PERSONAL CARE PRODUCTS SAFETY ACT In May, the Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors (ICMAD) Association raised concerns about legislation, the Personal Care Products Safety Act, re-introduced by Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Susan Collins (R-ME) that could stifle inno- vation and job growth in the cosmetic industry without improving safety. ICMAD restated support for the Cosmetic Modernization Amendment, which was introduced earlier this year by Congress- man Pete Sessions and is also endorsed by the Professional Beauty Association. "We appreciate that Senators Feinstein and Collins share a commitment to protecting consumers, however the Personal Care Products Safety Act would do more harm than good in the name of promoting safety. We support a different approach that is consistent with other FDA programs to strengthen consumer protections without stifling innovation and affecting jobs. ICMAD endorses the Cosmetic Modernization Amendment sponsored by Congressman Pete Sessions, which would enhance FDA oversight, create a national standard and provide clear direction for all companies. Safety is an essential component to our members' businesses and a top priority to ICMAD. We are pleased to share like-minded thinking with our sister association, the Professional Beauty Association, who also supports H.R. 575, the Cosmetic Modernization Amendment," says Pam Busiek, president and CEO, ICMAD. While ICMAD's concerns about the potential impact of the Personal Care Products Safety Act may be warranted, the legislation has gained support from a number of big beauty industry players such as Estée Lauder, L'Oréal, Johnson & Johnson, The Honest Company, Juice Beauty, Revlon, Procter & Gamble and Unilever.
