About CCC

Colin’s Cosmetic Consultancy exists to solve problems in the cosmetic industry.  I have worked in the cosmetic and topical pharmaceutical business for 30 years and in that time have both encountered a lot of problems and met a lot of people.  If you have an issue there is a good chance I can do something to help resolve it, or know someone who does.

Consultancy Services 

Creating the product

Formulation Development – my background is as a cosmetic formulator and I have created many formulations over the 30 years I have been working.

Stability Testing – make sure you have the appropriate stability protocol for your needs.

Micro Testing – nobody wants bugs.

Toxicology assessment – a legal requirement, but also a great help to a good night’s sleep.  Make sure your product is safe for its intended use.

PIP File Compilation – get all the documentation you need to keep the right side of the cosmetic regulations put together and maintained to the standard you need.

Making the Product

Packaging and production – identify the best suppliers and contractors to suit your project.

Promoting the Product

Advertising copy – it isn’t always easy getting the unique feature of your product into language the consumers understand.  I have been working on this problem for over 5 years with my blog Colin’s Beauty Pages.   With over half a million views since it started, I think I am getting the hang of it.

  1. Hi. I’m browsing around a few places to find a safety assessor for perfume oils, but I’ve come across conflicting information. Can you tell me which tests I am legally obliged to have done, and recommend anyone who can do them?

      Hello Rachel,

      If you mean perfume oils that are supplied to be used in the making of perfumes, no they don’t need to be assessed. The final product that is sold to the consumer needs to be assessed. I do safety assessments myself but I restrict myself to product categories on which I have worked as I want to make sure I am a credible witness if I ever get dragged into court to defend what I have written. As I’ve never done any work in fine fragrances I won’t assess them.

  2. Hi Colin, what is your cost, for assessing one soap recipe. Diane.
