BOCA RATON, Fla. — Despite the fact that a passel of attendees still refer to its venerable annual meeting as CTFA, the Personal Care Products Council (formerly the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association) is calling its meeting, held from Feb. 26 to 29 here, a success.
Retail consolidation, supply chain integrity, global legislation and consumer concerns were the most talked-about topics in the chilly cabanas at the Boca Raton Resort and Club. Of particular concern to member companies was legislation affecting member companies, including the REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals) law, which came on to the scene in Europe in 2007. The legislation requires that suppliers compile safety data specific to each of its chemicals' intended applications — if a supplier wants to use a pigment in a lipstick and in, say, a paint, that supplier would have to work up data for both uses.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
