Helping to navigate the industry’s ‘green wave’

Nowadays plant-based products are witnessing popularity among cosmetic customers who tend to look for different cosmetic products with a shorter ingredients list.

 This green wave, as it could be called, has been expanding over the last decade; it has seen exponential growth and as of 2009 was worth an estimated US$ 6.6 billion dollars.1 Given past trends, market research companies have indicated that the industry is expected to keep growing rapidly in the coming years, and indeed, the market was estimated to have a revenue of US$ 34.5 billion in 2018.2 With such great market expansion, the cosmetic industry must make changes in the composition of their products or think differently for the future. 

In a fragmented market where numerous labels for natural products coexist, the International Organization for Standardization issued global guidelines on definitions for natural and organic ingredients (ISO 16128-1:2016) and global guidelines on the criteria for natural and organic ingredients and products (ISO 16128-2:2017). This new norm was established to harmonise but also standardise the organic and natural cosmetic market through definitions and calculation methods. 

Coptis Lab is a software suite that has been specifically designed to help laboratories create new cosmetic formulas efficiently without going back and forth. You will be able to access features such as: automated compliance check, warning on non-certified ingredients, automated calculation of raw materials origin and even more. Established in 1999 by Anne Karagoz, formerly of YSL and Sanofi, today there are more than 3,000 Coptis users in the cosmetic field.  From the marketing brief to the production, having a system that help boosting R&D processes is a must have today specially when customers are so demanding. The impact of the development of natural and organic cosmetics is undoubtedly significant, that is why Coptis Lab has included a new automated feature around ISO 16128 to help laboratories improve their products and create new ones. This paper will summarise this norm before showing how software can help develop natural products besides saving time.
