As cosmetics “in-person” retail has re-opened, it is important that good practices are in place to help reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19!infographic-reopening

Cosmetic Alliance has developed member Guidance for Re-Opening In-Person Cosmetics Retail which is posted here on our new Re-Opening Resource Centre.

The materials developed are intended to help industry understand and mitigate the risk of exposure to the coronavirus. Our objective is to assist in promoting the safety of beauty advisors and direct sellers (including other service providers and brand representatives), as well as their customers and clients.

With the help of subject experts, international partners, and other trade associations facing similar issues, as well as with member input, CA has prepared guidance materials that members can use to assist in their re-opening and staff training. Information includes recommendations, check-lists, and detailed resource references related to cosmetics retail, the beauty advisor (at the beauty counter), the direct seller (in-home), and customer/client interactions (e.g. product demos, makeup tools).

The CA Team hopes that members find these resources helpful!
