    Developing certified green cosmetics

    Natural, organic, fairtrade, vegan, halal… These are some of the ethical labels that are making their way onto cosmetic & personal care products. This new workshop gives an overview of the ethical labelling trend, and gives a formulator’s perspective. What are the issues when cosmetic (and raw material firms) consider taking the certification route?

    An update will be given of natural & organic cosmetic standards, including details of the permitted raw materials, processes and labelling issues. The adoption issues of other labelling schemes, such as Fairtrade, Vegan Society, Nordic Swan, EU Eco-label, Halal, etc. will be discussed.

    Case studies will be given of product formulations that have adopted such labels. Technical advice will be given to those looking at taking the certification route.

The identification, classification, mapping, study of diversity, environmental implications and inferences to skin condition are key areas of investigation.

    • Homeostatic renormalization of skin using topical prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics
    • Is there a connection between UV induced immunosuppression and skin microbiome?
    • Disequilibrium of microbiota is there a link with skin sensation after aggression and with skin aging signs?
