Science & Safety

Product safety is the top priority of the personal care products industry. We work diligently with our members to maintain the highest standards of safety rooted in science and cutting-edge research. Through self-regulation, the Council works to uphold and often surpass the most stringent U.S. consumer product safety standards. The Council has adopted a Consumer Commitment Code to formalize many existing product safety practices and to demonstrate its members’ commitment to safety.

The Personal Care Products Council Science Department provides critical support for the industry in addressing a wide range of issues. Working with our staff of scientists are a number of committees made up from experts from our member companies. These committees develop guidelines and useful references for the industry.
