With growing consumer concerns about harmful chemicals in cosmetic & personal care products, what ingredients are associated with health and environmental risks? What are the potential risks of nanomaterials? What green materials are emerging to replace contentious substances, such as parabens, SLS / SLES and microplastics? What are the safety issues of using natural ingredients? Such questions were addressed at the summit. The summit materials are now available for a professional fee. Click here for further details.
