NSF and ICMAD Partner for Personal Care Program

May 2, 2014

The Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors Association (ICMAD) unveiled a new partnership with global public health organization NSF International. The partnership provides ICMAD members access to the recently launched NSF Cosmetics and Personal Care Program.

In addition to GMP auditing, NSF provides a path forward for companies seeking to substantiate label claims or produce safer, greener or organic cosmetics and personal care products. The new program provides ICMAD members with auditing, training, product testing and certification services that enable them to demonstrate their commitment to quality and safety.

“As NSF International enters its 70th year and ICMAD celebrates its 40th anniversary, our two organizations have agreed to cooperate to extend NSF’s scientific and technical expertise in testing, quality management systems, regulatory compliance and training to ICMAD members,” said Pamela Busiek, president and CEO of ICMAD. “These services will assist our members in achieving access to new export markets in addition to keeping pace with consumer demands for safer cosmetics and personal care.”
