Why should you attend?

Despite no harmonized regulation, consumers and governments are paying much more attention to cosmetic claims and have become much more demanding with regards to "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.

  1. Develop claims that hold up under scrutiny, in a non-harmonized regulation environment
  2. Liaise more easily with independent labs by defining solid protocols (bibliography, in-vitro, in-vivo)
  3. Strengthen your substantiation dossiers by reviewing practical examples of success, challenges and failures

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
