AB 1575, authored by California State Assemblymember Ash Kalra, will require manufacturers to list ingredients on the labels of professional cosmetics and make information on the potential health effects of ingredients more accessible. In addition, the bill will increase penalties for failure to comply with the law and provide for state agencies to recoup the cost when pursuing actions against violators.
This bill is important for the Vietnamese community as Vietnamese immigrants make up a large proportion of the nail salon industry in California - approximately 50-80% - as well as in many other states.
