The Personal Care Products Council is pivoting to focus on passing cosmetics modernization legislation after mid-term congressional elections, while still hopeful the language could go through as part of FDA user-fee reauthorization. Karin Ross, executive VP, government affairs at PCPC, discussed the situation at the trade group’s Leadership Summit in Washington.
Linda Katz, director of the FDA’s Office of Cosmetics and Colors, touched on cosmetics modernization legislation in her 21 September presentation on agency priorities at the Independent Beauty Association’s virtual FDA Cosmetics Regulations Workshop.
