Compliance Requirements for Cosmetics and Health & Beauty Products: A Webinar Series

Join our experts for a series of webinars concerning the latest topics, regulations and updates related to the global cosmetics and health & beauty industry.

Practical Application of Existing and New Testing Strategies / Defined Approaches for Risk Assessment of Cosmetic Ingredients

Recorded: October 24, 2019

Skin sensitization is one of the key adverse effects which is addressed in the human hazard characterization and risk assessment of cosmetic ingredients. However, important aspects still need to be addressed, such as potency estimation of a skin sensitizer and the applicability domain of assays and strategies, in particular when challenging ingredients are tested. Our expert will present the activities on the identification of optimized defined approaches for predicting skin sensitization potency and their use for safety assessment via case studies. This webinar will present real-life examples of application of defined approaches for risk assessment purposes of cosmetic ingredients. 



Calculation of Naturalness Index According to ISO 16128 Standard

Recorded: October 31, 2019

ISO 16128 standard concerns natural and organic cosmetics/raw material ingredients. It is the result of several years of development within the ISO. It is titled "Guidelines for technical definitions and criteria for natural and organic cosmetic ingredients and products". It consists of two parts, the second of which came into effect in January 2018. Part 1 (ISO 16128-1: 2016) concerns "Ingredient Definitions". Part 2 (ISO 16128-2: 2017) concerns "Criteria for ingredients and products". During this webinar, you will learn more about:

  1. Why ISO 16128 Standard
  2. The different definition of the standard
  3. Calculation of naturalness index
  4. Information to have to calculate the index / content of your ingredient/raw material
  5. Case studies



Cosmetic Product Raw Material Qualification: Process and Overview

Recorded Nov 7, 2019

This webinar will briefly describe the steps that should be taken to improve overall qualification of potential raw materials to be used in cosmetic formulation from safety and regulatory perspective. Through this webinar the audience will get an overview of Intertek’s premium service and its importance across the cosmetics supply chain.

From Nov 1, the new testing requirement for cosmetics in China will come into force. The requirement for both importing cosmetics and domestic cosmetics will change. The changed requirement and the impact/chance for suppliers of importing cosmetics will be introduced.  


In vitro Oral Care Product Testing

Oral care personal care products which are classed as cosmetics in certain global regions such as Europe benefit from in vitro testing to help accelerate product development and support marketing claims. Novel oral care products need to be safe for use by consumers and must also perform well and whilst in vivo clinical studies for oral care products are the gold standard in terms of product assessment, these can be rather complex, time-consuming and expensive. Instead, a well-designed in vitro test can often yield the required data much more quickly and at a lower cost.

Our expert, Pete Hall, introduces in vitro study approaches for oral care products and illustrate with several case studies how such studies – whether they are to support early-stage development of a product formulation or in support of marketing claims or pack claims - may accelerate product development.
