Making Green Claims and the CTPA Tool to Assess Classification

Claims are an incredibly important part of a cosmetic product.  They are the ‘shop window’ and the initial engagement with the consumer.  Cosmetic claims are covered by law, not only requirements in the UK Cosmetics Regulation but, as with all advertising, cosmetic claims must be legal, decent, honest and truthful and must not mislead the consumer.  Another important legal requirement is that any claim made by a cosmetic product must be substantiated with robust evidence.  In this presentation Emma will introduce CTPA’s Tool for Claim Substantiation.  Emma will also focus on green claims, especially given the ongoing review by the Competition and Markets Authority’s (CMA) on such claims.

Accelerating the World’s Transition to 100% Animal Free Testing

In this presentation Carol will be sharing updates on how both XCellR8 and our wider community are accelerating the world's transition to 100% animal free testing. If we are to see a world free from animal testing for cosmetics in the next 10 years, there are ethical, scientific, regulatory and political aspects to address - these are closely entwined strands, running in parallel. Without one, the whole thing unravels. I'm aiming to give you a fast track update on the latest developments across these areas and tie it all together.

So if you've heard snippets of information lately about technical progress in animal-free safety assessment, regulatory complexities in the UK and EU, or public demands to accelerate progress, Carol aims to highlight the latest "need-to-know" information about this all-important aspect of getting cosmetic ingredients and products to market. Importantly, what direct actions can we take, individually and as an industry, to ensure that together we really can accelerate the world's transition to 100% animal-free testing. This session should have you leave feeling informed, inspired, and empowered in the knowledge that you can play a direct role in ensuring that cosmetic products become safer than ever, thanks to modern science.

Beyond UV Filters: The Future of Solar Cosmetology

As consumers are increasingly aware of the dangers of excessive sun exposure, and become more demanding of broad spectrum photoprotection, brands are challenged with building UV protection into Personal Care offerings -driving the trend for layering Sun Care across the different cosmetic segments. This ‘Sunnification’ trend blurs the lines between traditional Sun Care, Skin Care and Make-up.

The future of Sun Care merges technology and ecology, offering protection and well-being through formulas respectful of every skin type, consumer need and our planet.

Black Girls Don’t Blush – Power, desire and the practice of colour cosmetics’

While the generic definition of the use of makeup is positioned as a prop for the assimilation of youthfulness and desirability, Black women and their cosmetic beauty practices have been historically defined by the way they are viewed from a Eurocentric perspective. This gaze aligns itself with the value of whiteness and racial capital, and in turn informs the ideal of blushing. That blushing occurs in all racial ethnic groups is less surprising than the need to debate whether rouge is appropriate on deeper skin tones as it doesn’t appear ‘natural’, (a phrase that needs to be contested also). In addition, the societal attitudes and reinforced media messages attached to the use of rouge, inform self esteem, job acquisition and social advancement, while informing perceptions of immoral behaviour and status that are akin to that of colourism.   And yet the aesthetic celebration of the blush can provide a more nuanced appreciation of black skin for its users, precisely because the aim of its application is to add attention, and not minimize or diminish.

This talk aims to question whether the cosmetic construction of blushing and Black beauty ideals is advanced if the aesthetic definition of blushing changes. How should the current connotations of the application of rouge for Black skins be challenged? With an increasing market focus on the Black consumer, a revision of blushing and the use of rouge products can provide the cosmetic industry with the opportunity to consider new interpretations of what Black Beauty is, and could be.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Revise interpretation of blushing for Black consumers
  2. Challenge market focus of rouge products for Black skin tones
  3. Encourage Black consumers to engage in a wide range of cosmetic products, but without minimizing their experience
  4. Utilise development of Black Beauty ideals to expand the product reach for the cosmetics industry

How Social Media Brings to Life Your Formulations

  • Welcome and brief intro to Rose – career from beginning to now: English Literature degree, aspirations of journalism, weekend job as a make-up artist, how the two worlds merged to create working life today. Brief explanation of what she does right now, a mixture of sharing rosacea resources, sharing accessible make-up tutorials, and writing about beauty for various women’s titles.
  • Rosacea story – diagnosis, choosing to share findings online, how this opened up a powerful ongoing discussion and ignited her own fascination with formulations.
  • Social media – how the world communicates differently on each platform and how you can find different things on each platform! Instagram: for talking to your own community. TikTok: for everyone to join the conversation and for authentic conversation (with special mention to a fantastic formulator who brings scientific commentary to viral beauty products!). Facebook: the place to see what your audience really want and need from formulations.
  • Wish list – what Rose would love to see in formulations moving forward.
  • Testimonies and a thank you – an insight into the power of your formulations for real men and women. A chance to hear intimate feedback from people who find so much more than a formulation when they discover the right product. How your hard work can transform a person’s day, self-esteem, confidence, and potentially even their life.
  • Close and open to questions.

Assessing Product Sensory Experience with a Machine Learning Model Trained with Expert Sensory Panel Data and Analytical Data: A Novel Approach to Optimise the Use of Expert Sensory Panel

We will present a machine learning method to directionally predict/screen the sensory performance based on analytical measurements of novel product formulations. Our method aims to reduce the burden on costly sensory panel studies and streamline the new product development cycle by using appropriate product characterisation data. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our method on an industry dataset and show that it can achieve high accuracy and reliability in benchmarking new product formulations from a sensory perception perspective.

Expert panel discussing on the Impact of the Microbiome on the Beauty Industry – The Devil is in the Detail

While traditionally associated with gut health, as consumers become more informed about the role of the microbiome and how interactions between the skin-brain-gut impact on well-being, they are seeking products that are more than just skin microbiome friendly. Their interest in the skin microbiome aligns with other trends such as inside-outside beauty, holistic beauty and the demand for natural and sustainable beauty products. Because of this we are seeing more and more products making microbiome claims. At SCS Formulate this year there will be many new microbiome friendly actives including prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics, which have been designed to help support and maintain a healthy skin microbiome.

 

If you are promoting a new microbiome-assisting active, formulating microbiome-friendly products or just worrying that the skin microbiome is being over-hyped, then come and join the Inform discussion at 2:30pm on Nov 15th and have your concerns answered.

 

Experts will answer questions such as what is meant by a healthy skin microbiome and whether you should be worrying about your products damaging the skin microbiome, after all they killed the microbes in the Challenge test? Find out how you can be sure that your final formulations are good for the microbiome? The experts will be there to explain the latest understanding on the role of the microbiome in problem skin and in skin diseases such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis, and how this knowledge is opening up new product possibilities including personalised cosmetics based on analysing a person's skin microbiota. Then there is the impact of AI helping make sense of the huge amount of data coming from the world of omics.

 

It’s a great opportunity to have your say and to have your questions on the microbiome answered by the experts.
