This seminar is the latest addition to our educational events. Local tolerance is of utmost importance for all topically applied products no matter whether pharmaceutical, medical device, cosmetic or consumer product. Too often it comes into focus only when it is too late, i.e. when the consumer complains about intolerance reactions.

  • Dermatologic basics and the spectrum of local tolerance
  • Legal requirements and the needs of safety assessors
  • In silico and in vitro approaches for evaluating local tolerance
  • Clinical testing methodology for basic evaluation of local tolerance and advanced skin tolerance claims

Individuals in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry working in

  • Product Development
  • Skin Research
  • Claims Substantiation
  • Marketing

All presentations will be in English.
