Organised jointly with L’Oréal, BSP, CTPA and CEW UK, you will learn more about important topics from a whole host of industry speakers in the interactive environment of these four Educational Workshops;
Monday 19th September
Morning 9.30am -1.00pm:
This workshop is a must-attend for those wishing to better understand the development of cosmetic products and how science can help counter the misinformation about widely-used cosmetic ingredients or products. Bringing international recognised experts from industry, academia and associations together to share insights into the creation of cosmetic and personal care products, attendees will learn how the most demanding quality, efficacy and safety standards are met. Delegates will appreciate the importance of innovation, science and education, and discover the key to developing a legally compliant and successful cosmetic product.
Supported by CEW UK and the Department for Industry and Trade
Want to keep up with the regulatory framework around cosmetic products? This is the workshop for you. With strict animal testing bans in place in the UK, EU and many other parts of the world, the cosmetics industry has been at the forefront of developing alternative approaches to animal testing for more than 25 years. In the first part of the workshop industry experts will highlight recent regulatory developments in the European Union, United Kingdom and China. In the second part, participants will be introduced to New Approach Methodologies (NAMs) for safety assessment – an approach for cosmetic ingredients and products without reliance on animal tests.
Supported by CTPA UK
Afternoon 2.00pm -5.30pm:
Photoprotection is increasingly important. This workshop will discuss formulation challenges for solar products. It will explore the importance of sun protection, describe the major types of UV radiation and their impact on human skin at cellular, molecular and biological level. With 90% of skin cancers directly linked to sun exposure, use of sunscreen ingredients in cosmetic products has extensively increased. Find out how evaluation methods and recent research activities ensure sun protection products are environmentally safe, including for aquatic and marine life. A closing discussion with speakers will explore how solar product efficacy is assessed with guidelines and controls set up to ensure consumer protection.
Jointly organised with L’Oréal Research & Innovation, France
