Name Change…Cosmetics New Zealand

Cosmetics New Zealand will become the operating name of the CTFA. This follows a decision made at the Executive strategy meeting last year and subsequently passed at the 2017 AGM.

There had previously been some criticism of the word “Toiletry” as being somewhat hackneyed. It also brings us into line with Cosmetics Europe who adopted their name some years back. (It was formerly COLIPA.)
The industry body in Canada also moved to Cosmetics Alliance Canada more recently.

The registered incorporated society, Cosmetic, Toiletries and Fragrance Association of New Zealand Inc. (CTFA) will remain the overriding body for legal reasons.
