California’s Cosmetic Fragrance and Flavor Ingredient Right to Know Act mandates the reporting of fragrance allergens when present in a rinse-off cosmetic product at a concentration at or above 0.01% (100 parts per million), or in a leave-on cosmetic product at a concentration at or above 0.001% (10 parts per million).

Recently, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), in response to Fragrance Creators Association’s request, committed to align its reporting of Cosmetic Fragrance Allergens with the extended EU allergen list reporting timelines. CDPH had previously anticipated the reporting to be completed by June 2024. With the new updates, the reporting timelines would now match the EU timelines: for new cosmetic products to be placed onto the market, compliance with the new requirement is required by 31st July 2026 (within 3 years) and for existing cosmetic products already on the market, by 31st July 2028 (within 5 years).

Please reach out to know the reporting timelines applicable to your business.
