Cosmetic Claims and Labeling Requirements in the USA
Thursday, June 6, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (CDT)
Palo Alto, CA
This webinar will provide perspective on how cosmetic companies should label their products for the US market, and what needs to be considered in order to substantiate the advertising claims being made for such products.
Why Should You Attend:
The cosmetic product industry is growing rapidly in the United States with an increasing population of consumers taking an active role in maintaining and improving their physical appearance. The expansion of product offerings in this category has been met by an increase in monitoring and enforcement by the FDA and FTC, especially as ingredient technologies and formulations deliver therapeutic benefits. It is therefore important for cosmetic companies to ensure their product labels and accompanying claims are fully compliant with applicable statutes and regulations.
This session is designed for cosmetic companies, and is focused on helping those companies develop product labels and advertising claims that comply with applicable statutory and regulatory requirements. The webinar will also provide a perspective on how regulatory compliance can be built into company programs to support the development and launch of cosmetics in the US.
