Fragrance Creators Association Racing To Amend Fast-Moving Disclosure Bill In California
The trade association opposes the proposed Cosmetic Fragrance and Flavor Ingredient Right to Know Act, which advanced out of California’s Senate Health Committee April 10, but the group’s position could change if key amendments are made to the bill. Fragrance Creators’ flexibility reflects political realities in California that could make it very difficult to defeat or delay the legislation.
