NSF's Cosmetics Verification Program Fizzles, While EWG's Could See Second Boom

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

NSF International has put its cosmetic product verification program on ice due to lack of interest since its launch in April 2017. Meanwhile, more than 1,000 products from 75+ brands have earned the "EWG Verified" mark, and the NGO says interest is higher than ever following Walmart's announcement in September that it will begin pushing vendors to pursue the verification.
