INCI Insights

Eric Abrutyn – Aug 10, 2011

The International Cosmetic Ingredient Dictionary & Handbook (INC) has been in existence since the early 1970's. It has evolved into a global compendium for naming cosmetic ingredients for back label disclosure and referencing in technical journals. This self-regulated industry voluntary approach was accepted by the USA Federal Drug Administration (FDA), and thus cited as the second source for names for ingredient declaration. For the scientific community not directly associated with cosmetic ingredient nomenclature, the names would probably be confusing or not considered appropriate; especially in light of IUPAC or CAS protocols.
