WHEN A CONSUMER REACTS TO A COSMETIC PRODUCT: FROM COSMETOVIGILANCE TO PATCH TESTING 

Speakers Jason Williams (Royal Salford Hospital) & Stephen Kirk (SK-CRS Ltd)

Synopsis: Market surveillance, in which cosmetovigilance plays a crucial role, is arguably one of the most important attributes in the lifecycle management of cosmetic products.  Although cosmetovigilance is a mandatory requirement in the European cosmetic regulatory framework, the concept can also provide brand owners, both own-label and FMCG, with valuable insights into consumer perceptions of their marketed cosmetic products.

This presentation will highlight the current philosophy employed by the cosmetic industry in the European Union, illustrated by real-life examples of cosmetic products and product types which can elicit complaints from consumers using such products.

Stephen Kirk, Biography: Stephen is a highly qualified cosmetic regulatory professional with more than 20 years’ experience working in the Research and Development laboratories of Boots UK. His expertise spans all ‘cradle-to-grave’ activities of New Product Development from prototyping to launch, and includes collaborating with contract manufacturers and cosmetic developers in Europe and the Far East.  More recently, since May 2016 he has been working as an independent consultant.

Stephen's know-how encompasses ingredient selection and approval, formulation review, approval and testing, safety assessment according to the EU regulatory framework and market surveillance following launch, including dermatology follow-up. He also has considerable experience working at European level. Stephen has been actively involved in several Task Forces established by Cosmetics Europe (the European cosmetic industry trade association), including those addressing cosmetovigilance and the defence of key ingredients.

He has been an invited Speaker at several Seminars organised by the CTPA (UK cosmetic industry trade association) and UK Society of Cosmetic Scientists covering a diverse range of topics.

Stephen was the Chairman of both the CTPA Toxicology Advisory Panel and CTPA / British Society for Cutaneous Allergy Working Group until April 2016, and remain active in these two groups. He is a Member of the British Society of Cutaneous Allergy, European Society for Contact Dermatitis, US Society of Toxicology, Royal Society of Biology and UK Society of Cosmetic Scientists. Stephen is also a Chartered Biologist and European Registered Toxicologist.
