Transparency

The industry is united in its commitment to promote greater transparency and disclosure around the products it produces. Our Member Companies understand transparency creates trust, the bedrock of consumer relationships. They also recognize stakeholders increasingly want more information about product safety, ethical sourcing, and resource-efficient production and expect the brands they love to provide more information about their practices in these areas.

Working together with various parties along the supply chain, with respect for intellectual property and proprietary know-how, the industry aims to provide product information that is accessible, reliable and easy to understand, so consumers can make more informed choices. Consumers can find more information about the ingredients used in the product formations on Cosmeticsinfo.org.
