About the Cosmetic Ingredient Review

The Cosmetic Ingredient Review was established in 1976 by the industry trade association (then the Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Fragrance Association, now the Personal Care Products Council), with the support of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Consumer Federation of America. Although funded by the Council, CIR and the review process are independent from the Council and the cosmetics industry. CIR operates under a set of procedures.

General policy and direction are given by a 7-member Steering Committee chaired by the President and CEO of the Council, with a dermatologist representing the American Academy of Dermatology, a toxicologist representing the Society of Toxicology, a consumer representative representing the Consumer Federation of America, an industry scientist (the current chair of the Councils CIR Committee), Chair of the CIR Expert Panel, and the Council’s Executive Vice President for Science.
