Consumer Commitment Code

Introduction

Providing consumers with safe high-quality products is of paramount importance to our industry and our member companies. As such, the Personal Care Products Council (PCPC) instituted a Consumer Commitment Code (Code) strengthening practices already in place for many companies and incorporating new practices, such as a Safety Information Summary Program that makes information relevant to cosmetics product and ingredient safety readily available to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) upon request.

The Code will assure FDA is provided the information it needs to evaluate the safety of cosmetics products. In providing FDA with access to this information, consumers can be reassured the proper steps are being taken by government and industry to assure the safety and high quality of all cosmetics products, and allow consumers to make fully informed choices when purchasing cosmetics and personal care products.
