European Cosmetics Union Formed.

* Two professional associations representing their respective countries' cosmetics industries, FPS/COVREC, in France, and TEGEWA/Sector Group, in Germany, have partnered to created EfCI, the European Federation for Cosmetic Ingredients. Additional associations in other European countries, including Italy, Spain and the UK are also considering joining the union which is headquartered in France.

EfCI is the result of an European campaign conducted by the French Association for two years. Already 60 companies, representing 80-90% of their sector with total sales of nearly $600 million are involved in the association.

EfCI will partner with similar associations of the cosmetic industry including COLIPA, the Cosmetic Toiletry and Fragrance Association and the Japan Cosmetic Ingredient Association in improving the quality of cosmetic ingredients and contributing to the cosmetic consumer's safety. Jean-Pierre Barreerre of Indena, will serve as chairman and Thomas Saupe of BASF will serve as deputy chairman.
