Who Should Attend
The short course will provide a basic understanding of what INCI is and how nomenclature is assigned and then how it should be used on back label and consumer disclosure in personal care products. It will be especially valuable to personnel in the following areas:

  • Formulation Development 
  • Technical Service & Sales 
  • Regulatory & Safety

This course is recommended for: Formulators, Regulatory, Claims, Marketing, Technical Service, Sales

This course will be available On Demand: January 8, 2013

This intense 90-minute accredited online training course will provide a clear understanding on the INCI process, how to use it, and its global regulatory impact.

In 1973 The Cosmetic, Toiletry, Fragrance Association (CTFA) developed an industry voluntary process for assigning ingredient names that provide the consumer and medical field a common approach to understanding what is formulated in a personal care product. This process was accepted by the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the global regulatory community, eventually becoming known as the International Cosmetic Ingredient Dictionary & Handbook (INCI). This course will provide a basic understanding of the process to assign monographed nomenclature for ingredients used in consumer personal care products, along with how this is harmonized between the United States and the rest of the global community. The session will provide a snapshot of what INCI is, how it works, and how one should utilize it to meet government regulations and communication to the consumer.

This course has been revised to include a more comprehensive understanding of the global impact of ingredient back labeling, updated requirements for registration with INC, and new conventions, along with examples on how to use in development of formulations.
