Masterclass Overview
Natural, organic, fair trade, vegan, halal are some of the labels that are making their way onto cosmetic and personal care products. Consumers are looking for such labels because of concerns about contentious chemicals and ethical considerations. What are the business openings with such ethical labels? What are the issues when developing certified products? What are leading brands experiences with popular standards and labelling schemes? Such questions will be answered in this new masterclass that 
comprises seminars and workshop sessions…

Morning Seminars
After an introduction to ethical labels, an update will given on the UK & European market for natural and organic cosmetics. The latest market data will be given, as well as distribution, consumer and product trends. Details will be given of the leading standards for natural and organic cosmetics, including COSMOS, Natrue, and new ISO 16128 guidelines. The use of fairtrade ingredients will be discussed, followed by seminars on novel materials, skin biomes, and a retailing case study.  

Afternoon Workshop 
Titled ‘Formulating Certified Green Cosmetics’, this workshop tackles the major hurdles when adopting popular ethical ethical labelling schemes. An overview is given of leading natural & organic personal care standards in Europe, North America, and other regions. A comparison is made of the permitted / prohibited raw materials, processes and technical issues. The adoption issues of other labelling schemes, such as Fairtrade, Vegan Society, Halal, Nordic Swan, EU Eco-Flower, etc. will also be discussed. Case studies will be given of product formulations that have adopted such labels. Practical advice will be given to brands looking to take the certification / labelling road.

The masterclass is designed for personal care brand owners & manufacturers, formulators, ingredient suppliers, certification agencies and other organisations.
