 otherwise  subject to the requirements OF SUBDIVISIONS THREE AND FOUR of
 this section, may apply to the department for  a  one-year  waiver  from
 such requirements for a specific cosmetic product or personal care prod-
 uct, and upon such proof that the manufacturer has taken steps to reduce
 the presence of 1,4-dioxane in that product and is unable to comply with
 the  requirements OF SUBDIVISIONS THREE AND FOUR of this section. There-
 after, a manufacturer may apply for one additional one-year  waiver  for
 such product, upon its satisfaction of such similar proof.
