president’s message

Dear Friends,

CTFAS has been instrumental to the implementation of the ASEAN Cosmetic Directive (ACD) thanks to the tight and productive collaboration with HSA. The Directive was signed in September 2003 by all 10 members of the ASEAN Community; it entered into law in 2008 and is now the way of life in our industry.

We have organized several Workshops to help our industry comply with the various requirements of the Directive, to develop innovative products and be savy on the changes in the market place be it in regulations or e-commerce or consumer habits.

CTFAS has unique values which makes us unique: we stand for good ethics in business, good ethics in compliance with the regulations, and good ethics in product safety and consumer relations.

All year around, we organize exciting Tea Talks which bring our members together for social connections as well as keep our members informed of the new developments in trends, marketing, business, technologies or human developments.

CTFAS has grown during the last few years to become a mature, leading Association well respected in ASEAN. As a member of the ASEAN Cosmetic Association (ACA) CTFAS has expanded its role beyond its traditional borders, establishing an active dialogue with Australia, China, Europe, India, Japan, Korea, New Zealand and the USA.

Our web site should be your point of contact with the Association, the latest developments in the regulations, the upcoming Tea Talks, Workshops or other Conferences organized or supported by CTFAS are posted regularly.

We, the Committee members, are here to help and to listen to your queries; do not hesitate to contact us.

Best regards,

Alain KHAIAT, Ph.D.
President
