Cosmetic Compliance Conference

Los Angeles, CA, United States

Explore the myths and realities of cosmetic compliance  

The cosmetic industry is poised to see 7% growth over the next five years. It will grow from having a market value of $532 billion to $805 billion. With this growth it is important that cosmetic stakeholders keep their customers safe from toxins, allergens, parabens and many other elements that are part of the creams, hair treatments, lipsticks, nail products, skincare products, makeup, perfumes and deodorants and many other items that they industry, as whole, produces. This event serves as an opportunity for the cosmetic community to come together and learn about compliance best practices, hear case studies from large and small companies, and learn how regulations are affecting the market now and in the future.

Are you ready? If so, join us for the industry's most comprehensive conference to address - on a global scale - how mergers and acquisitions are reshaping the market, how consumers are playing a more active role in a products life-cycle, what ingredients are now more regulated, what new regulations there are, how both independent companies and brand leaders are scaling, and a lot more.
