Volatile organic compound limits tentatively proposed for hair mousse (6%), shave gels (5%) and nail polish remover (0%) at the California Air Resources Board's meeting in Sacramento, Calif. July 13. All three limits would take effect Dec. 31, 2002. CARB is aiming to have its consumer product limit proposal completed by the end of August and published for comment by mid-September. The agency will present the proposal to the board Oct. 28. CARB is in talks with several industry groups on the proposed limits, including the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association. CTFA agrees with the agency's VOC proposal for hair mousse but is taking issue with the proposed limits for nail polish removers and shave gels. CTFA plans to submit written comments by the end of July
