WASHINGTON, May 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Fragrance creators from across the nation today assembled on Capitol Hill to meet with policymakers about the importance of fragrance to the economy.
With the 115th Congress poised to discuss cosmetic reform, the collective advocated for common-sense and science-based policies that support business development and innovation, intellectual property, and importantly, consumer choice in the marketplace. The group also discussed the impact of potential changes in tax and regulatory reform on the industry including TSCA implementation.
The International Fragrance Association North America (IFRANA) is the principal trade association representing the interests of the fragrance industry in the United States, accounting for the vast majority of all fragrances marketed. IFRANA's members manufacture scents used in homecare, personal care, fine fragrance, home design, and industrial and institutional products. IFRANA member companies also supply fragrance ingredients, such as essential oils and other raw materials, used in perfumery and fragrance mixtures.
"Our industry supports a diverse group of contributors including agriculture, perfumery, science, sustainability, bio-diversity, and small business and large corporations. The process of creating fragrance requires many different steps and support thousands of jobs and livelihoods – fragrance creators spend years crafting scents that enhance lives and use practices that leave the environment in better condition than they found it," said Farah Ahmed, IFRANA President & CEO.
The origins of the fragrance association can be traced back to the 1920s. IFRANA produces Fragrance Notes, the magazine of record for the industry, available in print and online at FragranceNotes.org.
