In the future, the US may also align more closely with European regulations, especially in areas like ingredient bans, animal testing, and potentially increased restrictions on certain chemicals. This alignment reflects the global trend toward increased scrutiny and regulation of the cosmetics industry, as well as heightened consumer demands for safer and more sustainable products. Moreover, the panel will address key laws and regulations globally, including China. Panelists will be:

  • Analyzing the potential impact that the EU’s recent ban on animal testing will have on future alternative testing methods in the US
    • Comparing and contrasting testing developments and trends in China and what may be coming down the pike
    • Understanding the key changes in China’s Cosmetics Supervision and Administration Regulation (CSAR)
  • Examining the disparities in fragrance allergen labeling standards between the EU and the US – how could this impact how cosmetic product ingredients are disclosed?
  • Reviewing the differences between restricted substances and regulations around certain cosmetic ingredients within Europe and the US
