The personal care market is a challenging environment, evolving so fast. To meet rising consumers' concerns on care products while answering to the increased demand for product customization in a global market, cosmetic formulators must be aware of many parameters at the initial stages of the formulation management process. Sourcing characteristics of raw material, marketing claims, health issues, brand constrains, regulatory restrictions by country, cost objective, labeling or packaging components are some of the limitations to take into consideration when launching a product on the market. Cosmetic manufacturing also generates large amounts of data and documents from the marketing brief to the recipe/formula management including quality control and test follow-up.

With Coptis Lab formulation and regulatory software, cosmetic formulators save 30% of laboratory staff time and ensure compliance is met in the most efficient and cost effective way. Overall, risk is minimized and performance is improved.
