Big Federal Cosmetic Policy Reform Enacted

Brings major improvements, critical safety gaps remain

We are thankful for the advancements made in cosmetic safety represented by the passage of the Modernization of Cosmetics Regulations Act of 2022. The legislation makes many constructive and long-overdue changes to the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act, which has not been significantly amended since it was enacted over 80 years ago. We are heartened by these improvements, which have all been core priorities of BCPP and our Campaign for Safe Cosmetics since its inception in 2004. 

Despite this important progress, much work remains to be done to achieve a truly health-protective safety standard for beauty and personal care products for all. We must address critical gaps in cosmetic safety that impact everyone, especially women of color and professional salon workers.
