Course description

View Course Outline

As the cosmetic industry aims to create safer products and unique claims to stand out in the market, scientific resources need to prioritize testing products for their skin activity while meeting all product claims. Developing common criteria for justifying claims is a challenging aspect of product development, as it must be customized for the intended use and product type.

To address these challenges, we offer this accredited training course that focuses on establishing best practices for claims support and experimental design with a strong regulatory framework that meets all government and agency requirements.

This course is tailored to provide key insights and strategies for navigating the complex process of claims support, including experimental design and regulatory compliance. By taking this course, participants will obtain the knowledge and skills needed to develop effective claims that are grounded in science and meet all regulatory standards.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Explain the basic limitations of testing skin care products
  • Review common mistakes conducted during testing
  • Develop alternative methods for more accurate testing
  • Translate test data into rational, supportable claims
  • Create rational communication plans for presentation to regulatory officials

You will be redirected to our secure system.
