  • NGOs Mum On House Cosmetics Bill, But Likely Not Giving Thanks
    • Abstract: Going into the Thanksgiving holiday, neither the Breast Cancer Fund, which heads up the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, nor the Environmental Working Group had a statement to offer on the Cosmetics Safety Modernization Act, newly introduced in the US House. However, the bill is modeled after 2012 legislation that CSC called a "Trojan Horse" that would enable the existing regulatory system to stay largely in place.

    • Abstract: A bill introduced in the House Nov. 18 would preempt state regulations governing safe cosmetic ingredient use and health-related labeling requirements, such as those under California's Prop 65 law, and revise the "cosmetic" definition under federal law to allow for limited use of structure/function claims.

  • FDA Drafts Guidance On Safety-Data Musts For GRASE Sunscreen Actives
    • Abstract: Time and extent applicants seeking GRASE status for UV filters should provide FDA with the kind of clinical safety data used to support approval of chronic-use cutaneous drug products, and nonclinical testing should focus on potential long-term adverse effects, according to newly released draft guidance required from the agency under the Sunscreen Innovation Act. FDA is particularly interested in receiving comments about final formulation safety testing it anticipates requiring under specified monograph conditions.

  • House Microbeads Bill Advances With State Preemption Recommendation
    • Abstract: The House Energy and Commerce Committee endorses by unanimous vote an amended version of the Microbead-Free Waters Act, aimed at phasing out use of plastic microbeads in exfoliating or cleansing cosmetic products. Importantly, the recommended amendment would preempt state and local laws with differing requirements, ensuring national uniformity, but it also is crafted to bar use of biodegradable plastic alternatives, which could set the stage for debate on the federal stage like that seen recently in California.

  • Prop 65 Draft Rule On Trace Contaminant Goes Over Like Lead Balloon
    • Abstract: Industry groups suggest that the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment's proposal to lower the Prop 65 safe harbor for lead would result in increased litigation, consumer confusion and potentially even higher lead levels in consumer products sold throughout the state.

    • Abstract: FDA commissioner nominee Robert Califf emphasizes that adequate evidence is key to moving sunscreen TEAs through FDA’s evaluation process, addressing the issue during his Senate confirmation hearing.

  • Prop 65 Delisting Of Diaminotoluene (Mixed) A Refreshing Win For Industry
    • Abstract: Diaminotoluene (mixed) has been scratched from California's Prop 65 list of "known" carcinogens, which should help to ensure that marketers and retailers of personal-care products featuring common hair-dye ingredient 2,5­diaminotoluene are not wrongfully sued under the regulation for a failure to warn consumers. Big Lots Stores, the target of one such suit, petitioned California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment to review the listing, which led to the mixture's removal, effective Nov. 20.

    • Abstract: Recently released text from the Trans-Pacific Partnership outlining cosmetics regulatory best practices promises to be a "signal to the world," according to the Personal Care Products Council.

  • New York City Eyes Broad Microbead Ban With Narrow Phase-Out Window
    • Abstract: The New York City Council's Int. 928 is similar in spirit to legislation passed or under consideration in other states, but worded in a way that could ban in the five boroughs plastic microbead-containing cosmetics that have not been targeted elsewhere – as well as "hundreds" of personal-care and OTC drug products that do not even contain microbeads, according to the Consumer Healthcare Products Association – all by the start of 2016.

  • Mango Materials Optimistic That PHA Microbeads Will Be Usable In
    • Abstract: Rising PHA-based microbead supplier is confident that California's AB 888 will be amended to provide for consideration of biodegradable plastics and support innovation, but such action may not be "100% needed" anyway for personal-care firms to use its microbeads in rinse-off products, according to the company's CEO. A spokesperson for California against Waste said PHA is the material most likely to be weighed for potential exemption from the most stringent state ban on plastic microbeads to date.

The stakeholders maintain that widely used hair-dye ingredient 2,5­diaminotoluene is being targeted baselessly due to the "flawed and unclear" listing.
