State and Local Legislative Advocacy
PCPC advocates for legislation rooted in sound science at the state and local levels on policies that ensure the safety, quality, and innovation of cosmetics and personal care products. PCPC members can find more information on legislative activity through an enhanced, interactive feature on the Members Only portion of the website.
PCPC continues to advance anti-discrimination legislation across the U.S. As a member of the CROWN (Creating a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair) Coalition, PCPC actively supports the CROWN Act, which passed the U.S. House of Representatives and is now law in seven states and pending in more than 20 others.
PCPC works collaboratively with the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Association (ASDSA), American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), and more than 60 other health, education and parent groups to support legislation that specifically allows sunscreens to be used in schools. To date, 26 states and Washington, D.C., have passed the “SUNucate” model.
