Industry Groups Seek Meeting With FDA On Antibacterial Ingredient Studies

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

The Personal Care Products Council and American Cleaning Institute say industry is undertaking studies on benzethonium and benzalkonium chloride in consumer antimicrobial wash products, but seek input from FDA on study designs and an extended timeframe for their completion. The agency’s commitment to publish a final monograph regarding triclosan use by September 2016, per a late 2013 consent decree, should not have bearing on the GRASE status of other antibacterial ingredients or industry’s efforts to provide data supporting their safe and efficacious use, the groups say.
