Consumer Commitment Code

Providing consumers with safe high-quality products is of paramount importance to cosmetics and personal care products companies. As such, on January 1, 2007, 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 assures the 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 that the proper steps are being taken by government and industry to ensure the safety and high quality of all cosmetics products and allow consumers to make fully informed choices when purchasing cosmetics and personal care products.
