Cosmetics Europe held a Science Workshop on November 13th in Brussels.
The workshop was organised to engage in discussions with experts from industry and regulatory bodies to facilitate the regulatory use and acceptance of alternative methods.
The focus was on Genotoxicity, Skin Allergy and Read Across. The dialogue between the sixty experts from the cosmetics industry, the European Commission, the SCCS and National competent authorities was constructive and was seen to be an important step towards animal free assessment of Cosmetics products and ingredients.
Participants were keen to continue the dialogue in the months to come in similar settings.
