UK CTPA eyes beauty industry strategy after Labour election win

The Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Association (CTPA) has called on the new UK government to draw up a cosmetics industry strategy following Labour leader Sir Kier Starmer's landslide general election victory.

CTPA director-general Dr Emma Meredith said the "clear election result and significant mandate for the new UK government provides the in-coming administration with an opportunity to plan long term for the future success of business, and specifically for the cosmetics, personal care and beauty industry".

“CTPA welcomes the new government’s plans to have sector strategies as part of an overall industrial strategy and requests that, as part of this, the UK government develops a dedicated strategy for the cosmetics, personal care and beauty industry,” she added.

The trade body wants such a strategy to promote the essentiality of the industry’s products and services; maintain strict risk-based safety legislation; and protect science-led decision-making.

The CTPA also wants the strategy to provide a framework for growth with sustainability at its core; enhance the competitiveness of the UK industry for both import and export and champion the UK industry as a leader in product manufacture, design and innovation.

“CTPA stands ready and willing to work with government, as a trusted partner, on the critical issues affecting our vital sector,” said Meredith.
