Although the components are mainly derived from plants, the palm -based cosmetics are also subjected to various safety and efficacy evaluations to ensure their safe use and to guarantee their efficacy


Abstract:

Safety and efficacy evaluation of the active ingredients or the cosmetic products themselves is important to ensure customer safety, and to substantiate claims. As newly synthesized or extracted ingredients become available in the cosmetics and personal care industry, new cosmetics are continually being formulated to capture new market segments. The rapid development of new actives and formulated products has increased the demand for safety and efficacy evaluation so as to ensure the safe use and effectiveness of the products. Furthermore, safety and efficacy data are required by the regulating authority in order to ensure that the industry conforms to the cosmetic legislation. Palm-based cosmetics are formulated with oleochemicals and palm-based actives such as the tocopherol/tocotrienol fraction, dihydroxystearic acid and palm-based polyols. Although the components are mainly derived from plants, the palm -based cosmetics are also subjected to various safety and efficacy evaluations to ensure their safe use and to guarantee their efficacy
