How to go about cosmetics product testing? New UK conference to investigate
With testing for the UK’s £17 bn cosmetics and personal care industry a key area of focus for formulators and brands, a new conference dedicated to the topic is gearing up to launch.

The Cosmetics Cluster UK (CCUK) is hosting a conference 18 July, Nottingham UK, dedicated to questions around testing: how do you go about it in the first place? And how then do you keep it updated?

The Cosmetics Industry is highly regulated – tests for safety, stability and efficacy are a must if you want products to hit the shelves here in the UK and abroad​,” says the CCUK.

The journey will cover topics such as; do you need to test? future trends, needs for product launches, claims support and animal testing.  Plus, the opportunity to seek specific advice in expert-led round-table discussions​.”

Testing: needs exploration

The CCUK say that the theme of testing is a choice that was driven by over 80 CCUK associates and members.

Dr Gill Westgate, CCUK chair, explained: “Companies can gain immediate business benefits - by learning from industry experts to improve their own skills and knowledge, network with like-minded individuals and share best practice. Perhaps collaborate on projects too?

“The conference will ensure that delegates that are new testing understand the key principles and that seasoned product formulators are updated with key trends in the testing market and are able to speak to experts about any challenges they face​”.

The CCUK is hosted by YCF Limited, a not-for-profit membership association for the process industries. YCF Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of HCF CATCH Limited.  

The Cluster provides its member companies with excellent networking opportunities within the cosmetics and personal care industry throughout the UK, it says.

The conference​ takes place at The Meeting Space, BioCity, Nottingham on the 18th July 2018.  

The event will be invaluable for formulators, brand owners and retailers, in fact, anyone involved in the process of developing, defining and approving cosmetic claims and product launches​,” say organisers.
