On Monday, May 7, Congressman Leonard Lance (R-NJ) held a conference at L’Oréal’s Research and Innovation office in Clark, New Jersey to discuss the Cosmetic Safety Amendments Act of 2012. Congressman Lance described the bill as an opportunity to establish stronger FDA regulations for cosmetics and personal care products without burdening the industry’s ability to innovate and grow.
The Star-Ledger reports on others expressing support for the bill:
John Hurson, executive vice president of the Personal Care Products Council, a D.C.-based trade association, said his group’s 600 members, 34 of which have operations in New Jersey, support the legislation.
Riëtte van Laack, an attorney at the Washington, D.C., law firm Hyman, Phelps and McNamara, helps track bills that impact the FDA. She said the Lance bill would make it easier for the federal administration to protect consumers.
