CTPA Board of Directors


"2021 was a year of opportunity and re-growth, but also one of challenges. Aware of the opportunities that can accompany a new stand-alone UK regulatory framework, many companies are also deeply concerned by the inevitable divergence that Brexit will bring between the UK and EU. It is in just such a scenario that having a strong and forward-thinking Association is vital."

Debbie Rix, Chair, CTPA


Executive Comment - Director-General Advisory Group (DGAG)

Representing a thriving, innovative industry, CTPA sets the bar high in working for members and the wider industry to ensure that business can continue to do what it does best in delivering excellence and supporting wellbeing. Our role, as members of the Board of Directors, is to oversee the strategic decisions made and to encourage the team in its endeavours.

The year's results show how deeply CTPA has involved itself in helping the UK Government establish a strong, science-based UK regulatory framework following the UK's exit from the EU. Importantly, it continues to address international challenges to ensure that new Free Trade Agreements include cosmetic-specific issues.
