 Insights addressing regulatory concerns in the U.S. and abroad to foster compliant innovation amidst evolving times 

The cosmetics industry faces complicated, novel challenges and concerns. Extensive and ever-changing regulations make it difficult to stay abreast on new rules around everything from R&D to packaging and labeling all the way through marketing. On top of that, M&As are continuing to reshape the industry and consumers are starting to play a more active role throughout the entire product lifecycle, from expressing preferences on which ingredients they do or don’t want included, to providing public reviews on how they think the products work.

Join us for the industry’s most comprehensive conference that will address these concerns and more on a global scale.
