Why your cosmetics brand should be compliant & what can happen if it’s not

This week the episode focuses on my favourite topic – compliance – and it asks the big question: Why should I make compliance a priority, and what can happen if I don’t?
In this episode, we delve into the intricacies of cosmetic regulations and the why it’s so important in the beauty industry. I shed light on the basics of regulatory compliance, including the consequences of non-compliance and the myriad of benefits of adhering to the regulations (hint: it’s not what you think).
We explore the following:
  • The basics of cosmetic regulations: – what it is, why it exists, and why it’s important
  • What can happen if you’re not compliant (you probably won’t go to gaol, but we’ll look at the realistic consequences you could actually face!)
  • Why being compliant offers numerous benefits, way beyond avoiding negative consequences
  • How ethics comes into the picture when compliance is discussed.
I’ve got some fascinating case studies and I think you’ll find this episode very enlightening and empowering.
Join me as we navigate the complex world of cosmetic regulations in this final episode of Season 2.
See you back here in June for Season 3!
