The proposed Cosmetic Fragrance and Flavor Ingredient Right to Know Act faces no opposition in its current form, but must pass California’s Assembly and get the Senate’s concurrence before 1 September.
Funding issues appear to have factored in the proposed Cosmetic Fragrance and Flavor Ingredient Right to Know Act’s failure to cross the finish line in the first act of the California legislature’s 2019-2020 session.

The proposed legislation is moving rapidly through the California Assembly after passing the Senate in late May.
