ABSTRACT
This article discusses how collaboration and regulatory constraints have advanced the cosmetic industry in the U.S. Most manufacturers in the industry focus on innovating in different fields and obtain licenses to take advantage of its intellectual property rights. The legislation, Registration, Evaluation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), has pushed the cosmetic industry to join in the review and formulating of laws to make sure their interests are protected.
