In cosmetic exposure, let’s explore if the majority (80%) of product exposure to a population is caused by a minority (20%) of products. To tell whether this 80/20 rule holds true we will need to calculate the aggregate exposure of cosmetic products to the population.
New European Cosmetic Directive Enters Into Force – What it Means for Safety and Exposure Assessment
The provisions of the new Regulation aim at ensuring that consumers’ health is protected and that they are well informed by monitoring the composition and labelling of products.
Sensors embedded in products could lift the veil on product use in the home, especially for new products where there is much uncertainty about how the public will react or engage with a product.
The guiding maxim is known as the three Rs, namely Reduction (fewer animals), Refinement (improved procedures), and Replacement (different tests).
Studying different types of exposure such as from which route we are exposed, or chronic exposure, allows us to examine a range of scenarios.
In highly competitive industries, improved understanding of the financial exposure risk profile from being associated with contaminated products in the market is increasingly important. By using data organised in structured data sets and through the application of science-based mathematical models, Creme Global quantifies detailed risk profiles that can simplify risk management decisions and mitigate financial risk.
With RIFM we saved over 116,000 animal lives by bringing data science and exposure assessment together
Animal testing is of course highly undesirable from an ethical perspective, and equally using crude calculations to determine human health and exposure is far from ideal.
