Title: A Cosmetic Chemists Guide to Natural Formulating Standards
Abstract: The naturals trend in the cosmetic industry continues to grow and cosmetic chemists are now frequently asked to create formulas that are natural, organic, non-toxic or even chemical free. The challenge is that many of these terms have no legal definition so formulators often have to guess what compounds can be considered natural. A number of nongovernmental organizations like COSMOS, Ecocert, BDIH, NaTrue and more have published standards which many companies turn to for guidance. Each of these groups have slight differences in their standards and it can become confusing for anyone trying to follow them. In this talk we’ll review the features of the major natural standards from around the world and how it impacts cosmetic formulators.
