Why should you attend?

Demands from UN climate change requirements has a direct impact on the cosmetics industry, requiring you to adopt a new mindset when designing claims. ISO 14201 implies we cannot use “sustainable” claims for consumer products. Also, with July 2019 regulations impacting "free-from" claims, you must tread this path carefully!

If you don't get the processes right ( from consumer insight to claim development strategy and communication ), no matter what the claim, you will fail in the overall compliance. There is no room for non-compliance with EU legislation, greenwashing the consumers, lack of transparency… So, to avoid challenges from regulatory entities, consumers & competitors join this course and learn how to:

  1. Better develop sustainable cosmetics claims within the framework of EU legislation, ISO norms & accreditation.

  2. Understand the implications of the updated (2019) legislation especially in the area of “free-from” claims; animal claims, and more.

  3. Avoid common pitfalls ( like irrelevant, drug-like, limpet syndrome… ) while making so-called sustainable claims.

  4. Establish transparency with your consumers by developing "honest claims".

  5. Withstand scrutiny by consumers & competitors.
