Regulations & Claims

  • Regulations & Claims

    New to in-cosmetics North America this year are the Regulations & Claims workshops.

    The sessions cover the latest updates on cosmetic claims and regulations in the US and beyond and aim to help attendees better anticipate potential challenges and opportunities when creating new personal care products.

    Indie brands can also benefit from attending a specially curated Regulations & Claims workshop on day 2 of the event.

  • Day 1
    2:00pm - 3:15pm

    Latest regulatory updates that will affect the US cosmetics manufacturers

    To achieve a global market presence, manufacturers and brands must comply with an ever-changing array of complex international cosmetic regulations, where significant regional and global differences exist for the definition of cosmetics and the applicable regulations.

    To formulate and market a compliant cosmetic product requires an understanding of the regulatory obligations of product ingredients, product uses and product types. In addition, chemical restriction lists, company policies, consumer concerns, and retailer restriction lists may further impact ingredient selections. 

    This presentation will look at some of the recent regulatory updates affecting US cosmetics manufacturers, and will examine the systems and processes you can put in place to monitor and act upon regulatory and non-regulatory changes on an ongoing basis.

    Speaker: Karen Lintz, Managing Director, Regulatory Assurance & Data Insights, UL

    3:15pm - 4:00pm

    INCI Nomenclature: The purpose and the process

    INCI stands for International Nomenclature Cosmetic Ingredients and is a globally recognized nomenclature system for ingredients used in cosmetic products around the world. In many regions, INCI names are required for the ingredient labeling of cosmetics and personal care products. 

    This presentation will explain the U.S. regulatory framework for ingredient labeling; the emergence of the INCI nomenclature system; and the INCI application process and publication of INCI names. INCI application “hints” and examples for some of the science-based conventions that have emerged to facilitate the creation of this unique and informative naming system will also be presented.

    Speaker: Joanne Nikitakis, Director of Cosmetic Chemistry, Personal Care Products Council (PCPC)
