    The Topic

    Navigating the Increasing Complexity of Cosmetics Product Claims

    The competitive landscape in the cosmetics category has changed dramatically over the past several years as natural and sustainable trends have taken center stage and a wave of new indie and influencer led brands have rushed to capitalize. These and other factors have added challenges to the already complex task of managing cosmetic product claims. Compounding this is the fact that most companies are using manual, disparate systems for claims management.
    Given current trends and the pace of change in cosmetics, it’s likely that claims management will get considerably more complex in the not too distant future. Companies without the proper systems and processes in place could be in for a rude awakening.
    Hear from product claims management expert John Cooper about how the latest cosmetics trends such as personalization, the rise of influencers, wellness, and accompanying supply chain challenges are merging to further complicate claims management in the cosmetics category. John will also present findings from recent third party research on claims management challenges, and offer recommendations to help your team prepare for what lies ahead.
