International & Trade
The cosmetics and personal care products industry is an internationally integrated industry, dependent on open markets and transparent, consistent regulatory environments around the world. Trade is a critical component to the success of our industry and contributes significantly to our ability to expand manufacturing and employment both here and abroad, and to achieve scientific and technological innovations that benefit consumers worldwide.
Our goal is to advance the global alignment of cosmetic regulations and regulatory frameworks to improve market access and eliminate barriers to trade.

CA is also a participant in the International Cooperation on Cosmetics Regulations (ICCR) and International Association Collaboration (IAC).
