Why should you attend?

Despite no harmonized regulation, consumers and governments are paying much more attention to cosmetic claims and are demanding substantial “proof” for these claims. For instance in Brussels, the commission has released the document on common criteria of cosmetic claims to which products must adhere. Join this course and:

  1. Develop claims that hold up under scrutiny, in a non-harmonized regulation environment by understanding regulatory differences between various countries.

  2. Define solid protocols to liaise more easily with independent labs by reviewing different classes of testing (in-vitro, ex-vivo, in-silico, in-tubo, bibliography…).

  3. Strengthen your substantiation dossiers by reviewing practical examples of success & do’s and don’ts.

Who should attend?

Formulators, R&D and lab managers, marketers at ingredient suppliers or cosmetics manufacturers with a need to better master claim substantiation / evidence-based claims
