Thank you for such informative podcast! They had such eye-opening information in them; for instance, I didn’t realise that that cosmetic regulations in the US were as relaxed as they were. Regulations for cosmetics/skincare are so important as you say not only for customer safety but for the formulator and to protect the business. Even as a qualified beauty therapist/aromatherapist I may be overwhelmed as to where to start initially with complying with regulations. I like how you broke it down into actionable steps; batch recording system, listing correctly, weight, regulations, GMP, has it been tested for stability and microbes and so forth. I took several skincare formulation courses years ago, however I was not confident moving forward now I know why; they did not offer courses on stability testing nor was it ever mentioned, as was safety assessors never mentioned either! It seems that one of the many reasons Formula Botanica’s graduates are very successful is because of the high level of education they are given.
