Objectives of the Online Intensive Course
This virtual course offers an intensive training programme, designed for those of graduate and postgraduate status, in the field of dermato-cosmetic sciences. Our aspiration is not only to provide up-to-date reliable scientific information of university standard regarding chemically and toxicologically well-defined dermato-cosmetic products, but in particular also of the close interaction between products and the skin as a living organ. The course is aimed to form specialists for the cosmetic industry, the dermatologically oriented pharmaceutical industry and for professionals in research and development, scientists, marketeers and training people involved in dermato-cosmetics. According to cosmetics Regulation N°1223/2009/EC and Regulation 655/2013, besides the safety of cosmetics, efficacy also plays an important role in the Product Information File (PIF) that needs to be prepared for each cosmetic product placed on the EU market.
In the actual course you will hear what the EU regulatory framework means in terms of safety and claim substantiation.
