CTFA Now Personal Care Product Council

January 4, 2008

As already reported on, early last month the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association (CTFA) changed its name to the Personal Care Products Council (PCPC). The council’s new motto is: “committed to safety, quality & innovation.”

The industry group insists that while the name has changed, its mission remains the same: to enable its members to continue to develop and sell the safe, quality and innovative cosmetic and personal care products that help consumers live better, healthier lives. PCPC will continue to offer quality services, products and information on scientific, regulatory and legislative developments to the industry.

PCPC executives said the new, broader and more contemporary name for the association reflects its increasingly diverse membership.

At the same time, the council launched a new website,, that gives consumers easy access to safety information about cosmetic ingredients and the science behind 13 personal care product categories and more than 1,500 ingredients.
