Overcoming the challenge of preservatives in cosmetics

Overcoming the challenge of preservatives in cosmetics

18 April 2018, 14:50 - 15:20

Technical Seminars Theatre 3

Preservatives are frequently associated with contact allergy in cosmetic products, which results in restrictions imposed by global regulatory agencies. Indeed, consumer exposure to a list of preservative substances that is increasingly shorter can result in a higher incidence of primary sensitization.

This creates a paradox for formulators, as it is increasingly difficult to reduce allergic reactions and contact dermatitis in the medium and long-term based on a little-diversified palette of preservatives.

Discover a new way to provide formulators greater chances of diversification in terms of product preservation.

We look forward to see you in our seminar.
