Avoid regulatory red flags when selling and marketing cosmetics with drug-like benefits

Navigating the myriad laws and regulations that apply to cosmetics, OTC topical drugs, and cosmetic drugs can be a daunting task, but determining which labeling and marketing rules to follow when your product is an unregulated cosmetic-hybrid – such as a cosmeceutical or nutracosmetic – is even more difficult.

Master the current legal landscape and stay ahead of new developments affecting the regulation of these hybrid products

The high cost of running afoul of the FD&CA, FP&LA, or consumer protection laws makes it all the more necessary for counsel, regulatory affairs officers, and marketing professionals to minimize risk. You need to be completely up to date on which laws apply to your company’s products, as well as how the company is faring with respect to compliance.

American Conference Institute has developed this one-of-a-kind publication from our In-House Counsel’s Forum on the Regulation, Marketing and Manufacturing of Cosmetics, Cosmeceuticals, OTC Topical Drugs, and Nutracosmetics to bring clarity to this murky field of law. At this premiere event, experienced attorneys for leading cosmetic and pharmaceutical manufacturers will offer insights and guidance and answer your most pressing questions related to pending federal and state legislation, as well as proposed new regulations affecting the industry.
