Scivera had the opportunity to listen to “The Future of Clean Beauty” webinar by Cosmetics Business in partnership with Aprinnova on June 25, 2020.
In this webinar we learned that since the Covid-19 pandemic started, there has been increasing interest by consumers for beauty products that are safe, non-toxic, and environmentally responsible.
What does “Clean Beauty” mean? Credo defines it as the nexus intersection between safety of beauty products, sourcing of beauty products, ethics of creating the beauty products, and sustainability of creating the beauty products. All of this with the foundation of transparency with consumers. It is the goal that one day “Clean Beauty” products are simply “Beauty” products.
Scivera has multiple services where we can assist in achieving Clean Beauty products. Within the nexus outlined by Credo, Scivera’s services can assist with safety, sourcing and transparency.
In terms of safety in Clean Beauty, Scivera can provide hazard assessment of ingredients for beauty products. This includes many comprehensive chemical assessments in human toxicity, environmental impacts, and various physical and chemical characteristics. This can be done through SciveraLEns® RapidScreen software services. Scivera can also provide risk assessment via Enterprise service.
In terms of sourcing in Clean Beauty, Scivera is already involved in Screened Chemistry where connection with supply chains is necessary in order to comply with assessing and scoring of chemicals. Connecting with supply chains is necessary to establish intentional ingredients and impurities that may be confidential to the supplier but necessary to establish for Screened Chemistry scoring. Scivera can work with hazard assessment of Clean Beauty chemicals by working with their supply chains and track the sourcing of all the chemicals.
In terms of transparency, Scivera can emphasize transparency in the supply chain. Scivera has had relationships with ZDHC and NimkarTek where they have level or procedures of checking/ testing products for any restricted substances. This can ensure consumers that the products in Clean Beauty are safe from any banned substances list while keeping proprietary formulations from suppliers confidential.
The future for Clean Beauty is promising with the assistance of services that Scivera can provide to ensure Clean Beauty meets its goals.
