CTPA Board of Directors

"It has never been a more important time to have a united and responsible cosmetics industry, and to work together to ensure that our essential industry continues to act to protect the consumer and the environment, whilst creating the conditions for innovation and growth.  

"As Chair it is a privilege to represent the personal care industry and work with CTPA members who contribute immensely to the UK’s economy, culture and society. The industry’s value is significant and far-reaching, adding £24.5 billion to the nation’s GDP, and supporting the employment of 550,000 across the nation, in all channels of economic impact in 2022. 

"The CTPA is the trusted unifying voice of our industry, that is why collaborating and engaging with UK policy makers and Cosmetics Europe, the European personal care association, will be key to future success of the industry. The CTPA will continue to advocate for high regulatory standards which businesses and consumers know and trust, ensuring that the UK remains competitive."
