California emissions extension

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association requests extension of time to comply with CARB's antiperspirant/deodorant 0% HVOC emission standards until Jan. 1, 2001. "It is neither technologically nor commercially feasible" for industry to meet the high volatile organic compound standard by the Jan. 1, 1999 deadline, CTFA asserts in an Oct. 6 letter to the California Air Resources Board. The combination of aerosol propellant 1,1-difluoroethane and antiperspirant active aluminum chlorohydrate causes a chemical reaction, which results in "unacceptable levels of packaging and component part corrosion," according to CTFA. Aluminum chlorohydrate is the only antiperspirant active ingredient allowed by FDA, and 1,1-difluoroethane is the sole propellant able to achieve the HVOC standard. While the reaction applies only to antiperspirants, CTFA maintains that since "manufacturing processes and product integrity link" antiperspirants and deodorants together, both products should apply to the extension. CTFA estimates that without this extension, industry will lose $30.3 mil. annually. CTFA's petition will be addressed at a Nov. 9 hearing in Sacramento
