  • Claim Substantiation for Cosmetic Products 
Sunday, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM 

The FDA and the FTC are carefully watching cosmetic products for non-substantiated misleading claims. If the claim is indeed misleading the consumer and drives to a purchase of a product that will not deliver its premise-this is an ethical matter. With the skin care industry striving to produce safer products, it should also further stream its scientific resources towards testing products for their activity on the skin and provide fair translation into claims. Common criteria for justification of claims are a challenging aspect in product development since it needs to be customized for the purpose of use and nature of the product developed. This course is tailored to provide key aspects in the establishment of best practice to be applied in experimental design and tie it into the regulatory framework rationale. It will focus on recent developments in skin biomarkers research and skin microbiome as well as human clinical studies.
