FDA RESPONSE TO CTFA PROPOSAL ON BOVINE-DERIVED INGREDIENT SAFETY IN THE WORKS, the agency said. In light of the recent concern surrounding the use of ingredients derived from cows that may be infected with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) in cosmetics, FDA said it will prioritize its review of the Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Fragrance Association's proposal outlining documentation standards that will ensure that bovine-derived cosmetic ingredients are safe. The agency said it expects to issue a response "within 30 days."
