Download Percefoni Doufou-Shafiq’s Cosmetics Presentation from In-Cosmetics Global, Paris

Posted on: April 29, 2019

UL Senior Regulatory Specialist Dr. Percefoni Doufou-Shafiq recently spoke at the In-Cosmetics Global exhibition in Paris, France, where she presented a technical seminar titled “Overview of the Cosmetic Global Regulatory Environment’’ to a full house of attendees.

The presentation focused on the differences between the regulatory status of cosmetic ingredients in international cosmetic regulations, covering four regions:

  • EU
  • US
  • Australia

Using a hypothetical formulation, it was demonstrated how the different international regulations can influence the choice of ingredients in a product. The presentation also touched on how cosmetic ingredients selection can be further influenced by retailer companies setting their own chemical policies and substance restrictions.
