Danielle Botelho, PhD, presents on RIFM’s Safety Assessment process for DGK and IKW
As part of its efforts to help ensure everyone can safely enjoy their favorite fragranced products, RIFM shares its research findings and safety assessment process with stakeholders worldwide. Later this week, RIFM’s Safety Assessment Manager, Danielle Botelho, PhD, joins international colleagues at the Scientific Conference on Safety Assessment “Safety is the Key,” held in Petersberg, Germany, for safety assessors of the German Society for Scientific and Applied Cosmetics (DGK) and the German Cosmetic, Toiletry, Perfumery and Detergent Association (IKW).
Dr. Botelho’s presentation, “Evaluating the Safety of Perfume Ingredients,” runs from 11:15 to 11:35 on June 16th.
“We recently provided DGK with an Introduction to RIFM and its Safety Assessment Process, which lays out a general overview of how we assess the safety of discrete (individual) and NCS (plant-extracted) fragrance materials,” Dr. Botelho explained. “During Friday’s Seminar, we’ll dive deeper into the details to provide German safety assessors a more robust and granular understanding of what we do.”
Later this month, RIFM will launch a new communications campaign detailing the areas (or “endpoints”) of human health and the environment covered by its Safety Assessment series.
