Background

In 2023, the Washington Legislature passed the Toxic-Free Cosmetics Act (TFCA) (Chapter 70A.560 RCW) to improve cosmetic and personal care product safety and protect Washington’s residents and environment from toxic chemicals.

TFCA restricts the manufacture, distribution, and sale of cosmetic products that contain certain toxic chemicals within Washington. It also:

  • Directs us to evaluate the hazards of chemicals with the same function as restricted chemicals that may be safer.
  • Directs us to provide technical support to small businesses that make or use cosmetic products.
  • Gives us the authority to conduct rulemaking to restrict chemicals that release formaldehyde in cosmetics.
