Makeup Ghana (MUG), the industry advocate for beauty in Ghana, has been appointed to serve on the national committee that will spearhead policy directions for standardisation in the cosmetics industry.
MUG has been offered two portfolios on the committee and would be represented by the Founder/CEO, Rebecca Donkor and CEO of Colorbox Cosmetics, Stephanie Adu.
According to MUG, these two vibrant female entrepreneurs are known for holding in high esteem the best and approved practices in operating in the beauty space and therefore will ensure the implementation of excellent measures for the sector.
“Within the framework of driving for standardization, the beauty industry advocate – Makeup Ghana (MUG) over the years engaged with GSA, to explore the development of a private quality certification scheme for beauty products and therefore the call did come as no surprise,” MUG stated.
This new development is an initiative by the Ghana Standards Authority (GSA), to reconstructs the National Technical Committee for Cosmetics (GSA/TC 3) by scouting for individuals from a selected number of organizations with the expertise to influence policies for the industry.
According to GSA, calls for experts from the priviledged few, been identified as important stakeholders for the committee is a strategy to engage experts and professionals since the scope of work of this technical committee is standardization and doubles as the National Mirror Committee (NMC), which supports regional and international standardization activities for the cosmetics sector.
