FAQs

As part of the Cosmetics & Toiletries (C&T) brand, www.CosmeticsandToiletries.com was created for professional cosmetic R&D staff, specifically cosmetic chemists, product formulators, research scientists and R&D managers developing and manufacturing cosmetic and personal care products.

This website has changed since my last visit. What’s new?
Cosmetics & Toiletries has redesigned and reengineered this site, adding site registration and enhanced content presented within the framework of additional relevant and complementary content. Additionally, all C&T is available in full (previously, technical content and scientific papers were only available for a fee), and there are new tools, such as My Library* and sample request interfaces,** that allow users to use content more effectively toward their goal in developing and formulating cosmetic products. For a more complete introduction, watch the C&T re-launch video.

*One of the most advance features on www.CosmeticsandToiletries.com, My Library allows you to save, organize, retrieve and share your favorite content—including research articles, regulatory updates, and ingredient and formula information provided by suppliers. For more information, go to the My Library page.

**C&T relies on ingredient suppliers to fulfill all sample requests. Delivery times will vary. To contact a supplier, look up their contact information in the Cosmetics & Toiletries Bench Reference (CBR) database.
