California’s SB 312 “Reportable Ingredient List” has been revised to include references to INCI names and the International Fragrance Association (IFRA) ingredient list.
SB 312, is better known as the “Cosmetic Fragrance and Flavor Ingredient Right to Know Act of 2020”. The law, which goes into effect January 1, 2022, requires cosmetics manufacturers of products sold in the state to provide the state’s Division of Environmental and Occupational Disease Control with a list of each fragrance ingredient or flavor ingredient that is included on a designated list, and a list of each fragrance allergen that is present in the cosmetic product in specified concentrations.
The law also requires the Division of Environmental and Occupational Disease Control to post on its existing database of cosmetic product information a list of those fragrance ingredients and flavor ingredients in the cosmetic product and its associated health hazards.
The California Department of Public Health published its SB 312 “Reportable Ingredient List” on June 30th. The list contains 3,096 chemicals, with CAS #s, hazard traits, and authorities from whom the listed chemical, compiled from the 23 lists referenced in the law, came from.
