In personal care, brand trust—and proof of the product benefit—is everything.

With the cosmetic and cosmeceutical sector growing exponentially, the most successful brands rely on evidence to support their product claims and efficacy.

Cosmetics can often fall into more than one regulatory category, so beginning the clinical research process with a solid understanding of the best path to market is essential.

From there, you will be able to determine the right study design to validate your product’s unique claims and differentiate – both on the shelf and online.
