The Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association reiterates its "strong endorsement" to change color additives labeling to color index numbers from FD&C names prior to finalization of FDA's March 1996 proposed rule in a recent letter to the agency. FDA's proposed rule would permanently list color additive lakes and allow the use of abbreviated color additive names on cosmetics labels. At the time the rule was proposed, CTFA agreed with FDA's decision, stating that such a move would move the industry toward international harmonization. If FDA chooses not to establish color index numbers, CTFA requests the agency "not wait for finalization of color additive lakes regulations but take prompt action" and allow the industry to use abbreviated names for color additive lakes. This would be consistent with the nomenclature used for straight colors, CTFA adds
