Since March 2013 and the animal testing ban, the determination of raw material toxicological profile is now based solely on in vitro tests. Various parameters have to be controlled: ocular and skin irritation, phototoxicity, genotoxicity, sensitization, acute toxicity and now endocrine disruption potential.

Due to the continuous progress on alternative methods development, the available tests are numerous and can appear sometimes redundant. Manufacturers have to make a difficult choice between different strategies, more and more complex, in order to evaluate the safety of their products.

This presentation aims to guide them through the intricacies of in vitro regulatory toxicology.
