The Challenges of  Global Preservation of Cosmetics

The relentless attack on all preservatives goes on.  These include new bans and restrictions on previously approve preservatives in the EU, additions to Canada’s Hot List, State prohibitions and their pseudo retractions, the NGO’s scare tactics and the worst attacks are by the marketers of cosmetics. What is the end result of these attacks? A mad scramble to find anything to preserve our products that is acceptable to our marketing department. Suppliers come out with new unheard of “natural” preservatives, blends of whatever marketing will accept to try and find a combination that works and recalls of contaminated products. Guess who woke up to this problem? The regulators! What will they do? The EU is proposing a ban on “free” claims but the one to watch out for is the latest FDA’s Cosmetic Guidelines issued early this year.

Regulatory updates

From the latest news in the US, California, Canada, Europe and other issues. This will update you on on you need to know as you  you face and the latest changes.
