As part of the beauty market, natural & organic cosmetic sector is an innovative and growing segment since several years. In the absence of binding regulations, private certification labels, such as COSMOS, have become the standard to provide guarantees about brands’ commitments and to answer to consumers expectations towards less harmful and more environmentally friendly cosmetic products. 

During the webinar, Pauline Raffaitin will give an overview of the natural & organic cosmetics market and some insights about the global trends to watch. Then, she will go deeper in the compliance requirements by giving some examples about regulatory constraints that apply on organic cosmetics. To finish she will also point out the differences between self-declaration such as in “Clean Beauty” trend and third-parties labels such as COSMOS certification.
