A recent article from C&T discussed the International Collaboration on Cosmetics Safety (ICCS), an organization formed by BASF, Chanel, Unilever, L'Oreal, LVMH, Shiseido, P&G, Kao, Henkel, Croda, Edgewell Personal Care and more that advocates for animal-free methods in cosmetics safety testing.
With formula testing, and more particularly, animal testing being such a contentious topic in the industry, the ICCS will fund scientific evaluation of animal-free safety assessment approaches, share results with cosmetic and chemical regulators and fund education and training activities in animal-free safety assessment approaches with Erin Hill as president.
Outside of animal testing, there are of course other methods to test products. This made us question:
Is information about how formulas are tested for efficacy/claims important to formulating them?
94% of you answered Yes, and 6% of you answered No.
Thank you for answering our poll. Be sure to check back on Tuesday for the next one!
