The uniqueness and ambition of COSMETIC Factory is to make the highest level of expertise accessible and available worldwide. Several Artificial Intelligences (AI), real experts but available 24/7, help the user to control, improve and finally, simplify his work.
FORMULA Check, the AI for which regulatory compliance no longer holds any secrets
Throughout product development, formulators must follow a marketing brief. As specialists in the development of new products, formulators can only have a limited knowledge of the regulatory complexity of each country where the products are marketed. Why does this ingredient turn the formula into OTC? Why is this combination and concentration becoming prohibited? Why can’t such statements apply to formulas? etc
Formulators cannot always answer these questions without the help of specialists (regulators, toxicologists), and these time-consuming round trips can considerably lengthen creation times, increase costs and limit innovation.
In the creation phase, formulators have two options: get help at any time from experts and wait for their verdict, or move forward hoping that in the end, when a formula seems sufficient and accepted by marketing, regulatory constraints and toxicological evaluations. This often leads to a lot of frustration!
FORMULA Check AI provides the answer to this problem and revolutionizes the concept of compliance. Thanks to its scientific and original approach, formulators can call on FORMULA Check at any time during the formulation process.
FORMULA Check is an all-knowing expert who knows the most important regulations, toxicological and ecotoxicological properties of substances and ingredients, understands claims and has an absolute memory. At all times, it tells you not only that a formula contains regulated ingredients, but also the actual compliance status related to the target market and takes into account all factors that influence compliance. More than that, it provides you with suggestions on how to achieve compliance.
In the end, this AI will also scan your entire portfolio and instantly tell you, for each product, its level of compliance according to the different markets. No human expert can match this level of performance.
An AI to predict the results of challenge tests
Testing challenges are a key issue for a formula to be accepted from a regulatory perspective. Each new test may involve different factors: different concentration levels, use of new raw materials, use of new ingredients, new production methods (heat, PH…). These factors can potentially alter the microbial stability of a formula. Ultimately, each change involves the launch of a new test! This is obviously unrealistic, not only because of the costs but also because of the time required to complete the project.
In partnership with a major cosmetics company, EcoMundo has developed a Hybrid AI that combines ISO 11930 regulatory knowledge, chemical knowledge and Machine Learning.
The expert system integrates the premises of the ISO 11930 standard, while the Machine Learning will produce the reasoning based on the correlations established between the sample of thousands of formulas and their associated challenge test results. Therefore, the hybrid system allows formulators to gain a probability of passing the test and to understand the scientific and regulatory reasons that led to this result. The system also provides suggestions for possible improvements, making this solution a useful and reliable tool for formulation support and optimization.
This AI will be extended to the selection of natural assets, the prediction of colors, the prediction of other results of regulatory tests as well as the prediction of the activity and the physico-chemical properties of chemical molecules according to of their structure, to support innovative R&D projects.
The SaaS PLM4.0 COSMETIC Factory software capitalizes on different AIs to check the regulatory, environmental and export compliance of a cosmetic product. It also allows accelerated and secure decision-making in the formulation and marketing process with the AI EcoMARKET. Currently, EcoMundo is working on modules for calculating environmental and societal impacts, as well as compliance calculations for the various global labels. More information to come soon.
