Funding Up for Cosmetics & Colors

Late last week the U.S. House Committe on Appropriations approved a $2 million increase for the U.S. FDA's Office of Cosmetics and Colors, a move praised by the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association (CTFA). CTFA president and CEO Pamela Bailey said in a statement "Our strong partnership with FDA has been put at risk because the Office of Cosmetics and Colors has shrunk to an insufficient level. This increase will enhance consumer protections and provide the cosmetics office with much needed inspectors and compliance officers." Bailey said the increase will allow strong regulatory oversight that will maintain high consumer confidence in product safety. Can't argue with that.
