About CHPA

When it comes to choosing the personal healthcare products consumers put on their skin, into their eyes, or inside their bodies every day, the most important factor is trust. Consumers need to know these products are safe. And that they work.

The Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA) is the leading voice fighting to ensure that Americans have access to over-the-counter (OTC) medications, dietary supplements, and consumer medical devices they can count on to be reliable, save money and time, and deliver new and better ways to get and stay healthy.  

That means CHPA is also the home for responsible consumer healthcare companies. We understand how to help our members — from industry leaders to ambitious newcomers — meet evolving consumer demand for more products without sacrificing safety and quality. And in a market as dynamic as ours, that’s never been more challenging or important.  

Whether we are helping regulators interpret cutting-edge science, partnering with lawmakers to craft sensible policy, or educating consumers to safely choose and use personal healthcare products, we are driven by a single goal: helping people pursue happier, healthier lives through responsible self-care. 

Vision
Happier, healthier lives through responsible self-care 

Mission
Empower self-care by preserving and expanding choice and availability of consumer healthcare products 

Workplace Values
Excellence, Integrity, Teamwork, Empowerment, and Development
