Key highlights of the review:
- Due to the lack of a universally accepted definition of a ‘clean’ product, beauty companies have relied upon certain certification bodies for natural and organic claims of their products.
- Estee Lauder, Johnson & Johnson, L’Oréal, Procter & Gamble, Revlon and Unilever have supported the Personal Care Products Safety Act bill, which if passed, will give the FDA the authority to regulate the ingredients and their concentrations in products.
- The US Environmental Protection Agency has proposed certain chemicals for risk evaluation in order to amend the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
- The European Cosmetic Regulations authority has become stringent with their restrictions on ‘free-from’ claims on personal care products.
- Startups thriving in this global movement have been listed.
- Corporate companies in the beauty space have started acquiring companies that are developing clean beauty products.
- Growing public demand for safety has led to the clean beauty movement.
