I’m off tomorrow attending a big cosmetic chemicals suppliers show in New Jersey. It seems that more chemical players are offering new natural-based ingredients for cosmetics and toiletries this year. I’ll let you know how it goes and with that note, I’ll leave this news about major drugstore CVS joining the crowd of other retailers in initiating more stringent cosmetic standards by launching early this year its new Cosmetic Safety Policy.
This is the first cosmetics safety policy to be released by a major drugstore retailer in the US, according to the consumer watchdog coalition Campaign for Safe Cosmetics.
CVS said it will also launch this year a new private label personal care product line called Vickery & Clark Natural Apothecary, which will only use natural ingredients. The line will have facial care, lip care and body care products as well as health remedies such as detoxifying bath soak.
