Washington, D.C. – “The Personal Care Products Council (PCPC) and its member companies were early supporters of legislation in California (Assembly Bill 2775) that would require professional cosmetic products, manufactured for sale in salons in California, to include labeling that satisfies all of the requirements of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the federal Fair Packaging and Labeling Act.  PCPC and its member companies are pleased that it will soon be enacted into law.

“Our members have a long-standing commitment to safety and transparency, and informing product users about the ingredients in professional products is yet another step in our effort to live up to this continued commitment.

“Providing ingredient information on the label will allow easier access to this information and will essentially codify what the industry has been doing for more than two decades. Nearly 20 years ago, PCPC instituted a voluntary program to provide the same ingredient information available to retail consumers to professional use products.

“We appreciate Assembly Members Kalra, Carrillo, Maienschein, Waldron, and Gonzalez Fletcher, for their leadership on this issue and thank Governor Brown for signing the bill into law.”
