WASHINGTON, DC / ACCESSWIRE / May 20, 2024 / Fragrance Creators Association (FCA) President and CEO Farah K. Ahmed issued the following statement on funding to support the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) implementation of the Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act (MoCRA):

"FCA is asking Congress to provide at least $8 million for the FDA's work to implement MoCRA in fiscal year 2025 (FY25). MoCRA ushered in a new era in cosmetics regulations but its success hinges on adequate funding. Consequently, FCA submitted letters to Congress today urging it to prioritize sound science, safety, and innovation and appropriate at least $8 million for FY25.

"Fragrance plays an essential role in cosmetics and personal care products, products that nurture skin health and hygiene, empower self-expression, lift confidence, and more. Sufficient funding for FDA to implement MoCRA will support responsible fragrance industry innovation, uphold safety, increase consumer confidence in the products they know and love, and advance environmental sustainability."
