The CTFA adopted the name Cosmetics New Zealand as its operating name in 2017. This initiative was considered by the Executive members at the strategy meeting the previous year and follows criticism that “Toiletry” is a somewhat hackneyed word.
The cosmetic industry organisation representing the industry in Europe made this change a few years back. Canada made the change more recently, albeit including “Alliance”.
The Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association of New Zealand Inc. (CTFA) will remain the registered incorporated society for legal reasons.
