Inolex and the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Association (CTPA) have become members of the International Collaboration on Cosmetics Safety (ICCS), further promoting the use of animal-free testing methods for evaluating the safety of cosmetics and their components.
The ICCS is a global initiative focused on the adoption of animal-free assessments of cosmetics and its ingredients for human health and environmental safety.
ICCS membership encompasses a diverse range of stakeholders, including cosmetic and chemical trade and research associations, non-governmental organizations and cosmetic product and ingredient manufacturers.
Inolex and the CTPA are among an array of international corporations and organizations including global beauty companies and animal protection groups that stand with the ICCS mission of applying animal-free test methods to ensure cosmetic safety.
The CTPA has helped advance animal-free safety assessments by teaming with experts to increase education and awareness of New Approach Methodologies (NAMs) and Next Generation Risk Assessment (NGRA).
Erin Hill, ICCS president and CEO, commented: "The inclusion of Inolex and CTPA as members is another important step towards driving greater global awareness in animal-free science. With these two notable organizations we will continue to build on our progress for the accelerated uptake of non-animal methodologies."
