Safe Cosmetics Alliance

The Safe Cosmetics Alliance is comprised of leading industry trade organizations representing manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, retail owners, salon/spa owners, and licensed beauty professionals, in the beauty and personal care products and services industry, who support science-based legislative and regulatory policies that enhance consumer and product safety standards.  Together, Alliance members account for nearly 8.2 million U.S. jobs and contribute nearly $189 billion in U.S. GDP every year.  The beauty and personal care industry is one of the fastest growing employment segments globally.

Members of the Safe Cosmetics Alliance touch people's lives every day and reach virtually all Americans who use cosmetic and personal care products, as well as beauty salon services.  We represent every aspect of the beauty and personal care industry, including:

  • Your local salon and spa owners, employees, and licensed beauty professionals.
  • Retail employees that sell cosmetics at your favorite store.
  • Independent business owners and direct sales representative agents who sell directly to consumers.
  • Companies ranging from small startups to global corporations.

We believe it is critically important that laws and regulations reflect the current advances in science and technology, enable industry to innovate, meet consumer expectations, and continue to earn their confidence.
