The new obligations as well as their practical aspects, i.e., the what, when, who aspects for the Responsible Person (RP) and distributors, will be presented. The presentation will also show the step by steps process of entering information in the new web base Cosmetic Products Notification Portal (CPNP).
Furthermore, the CPSR is also one of the data sets required under Article 11 of Regulation 1223/2009 (Product Information File), and is effectively a Toxicological Expert Report for the finished cosmetic product to ensure compliance with Article 3 of the Regulation, which states that “A cosmetic product made available on the market shall be safe for human health when used under normal or reasonably foreseeable conditions of use…”.
This presentation will describe the legally-mandated structure of the CPSR, together with the data that will be required to be included in the Report, as well as the toxicological principles that safety assessors will need to follow to justify the safety of cosmetic products placed on the market in the EU from July 2013.
As cosmetic products become functionally more biological, with activity that goes deeper than the stratum corneum, the risks and challenges increase when this biological activity is described in product promotion and advertising claims.
The risk is that the product may be regarded as borderline and classed as a medicine.
Cosmetics and Medicines Regulations are not wholly clear on what is a borderline product leaving room for interpretation by the national competent authorities.
The challenge is to provide robust clinical data and body of evidence to convincingly show that the product has the effect that is claimed in order to satisfy the advertising control organisations.
This presentation will discuss these issues.
The Southern Educational Event 2013 will visit some of the common misconceptions in the market place and examine some of the common false claims that are reported and re-circulated. It will ask why there are so many claims in circulation and look to understand the apparent basis of such claims. The speaker will move through the legislative requirements highlighting which parts of the new Regulation are, indeed, new, whilst exploring the current and future end points, which cosmetics may/will target. There will be an overview of consumer perception of such claims, which will consider the possibility of a future without cosmetics and some of the challenges that would need to be addressed.

Cancer & Hair Loss
Glenn Lyons (Philip Kingsley)
Nowadays we are all aware that cancer treatment causes hair loss in many cases. However I will explain the Physiological / Trichological pathways, differentiating between the effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy both pre and post treatment.
The drugs most likely to cause hair loss. The effect of “cold caps” the changes in hair shape and texture and prognosis on hair growth replacement.
I will also advise on wigs, when hair colouring can be considered again post treatment and use of hair products.
Benefits and a NEW Solution for Formulating High Performance Low pH Skin Care Systems
Florence Pecquerie (Lubrizol Personal and Home Care)
Skincare products today deliver against several important customer needs: protecting, repairing, maintaining or beautifying skin. Developing efficient and effective skin care products with pleasant aesthetics can present many challenges. It requires advanced science expertise and a deep understanding of skin biology. To achieve desired results, formulators must use efficacious amounts of active ingredients which are commonly acidic or electrolytic in nature. Balancing rheological properties of such high actives-containing formulations with the aesthetic properties required by consumers is a challenge. Our new rheology modifier assists in overcoming this limitation. Relative to other carbomers, its improved electrolyte tolerance and ability to provide higher efficiency at a pH slightly below 4 makes this polymer suitable for applications containing ingredients like α- hydroxy acids and β- hydroxy acids.
