Given the constraints imposed by an increasingly complex global regulatory landscape, developing a safe and compliant personal care product does not happen by accident!
My suite of services is designed to help ensure that your product will be not only compliant for its intended marketing domain, but also safe for its intended and reasonably foreseeable conditions of consumer use.
An advanced degreed Analytical Chemist and EU-Certified Cosmetic Safety Assessor, I spent 36 years as an Analytical Research Chemist, Product Safety Manager and Global Regulatory Affairs Director...all to help prestigious brands like P&G, Crabtree & Evelyn, Bath & Body Works and Abercrombie & Fitch consistently develop personal care products to the highest regulatory and safety standards.

A deeply rooted and both theoretical and applied knowledge of chemistry informs my ability to help clients navigate a burgeoning number of regulations governing so-called Chemicals of Concern (CoCs). This includes California Proposition 65, Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) under REACh, and the CARB VOC Regulations. From 1993 I have not only helped companies submit every CARB VOC Survey but have also helped a company successfully respond to a CARB TM310 challenge and (in partnership with the PCPC) have given two recent technical presentations to CARB. Moreover, I can not only help you identify any CoC present in your formula, but also suggest safer alternatives, sometimes called "Non-Regrettable Substitutions".
Designed to consistently exceed your expectations, my approach to customer service involves first and foremost listening deeply to your enquiry, capturing a customized service plan as a detailed quotation and then faithfully executing that plan to your timeline. This helps ensure your success.
