Preclinical and clinical tests: a booming sector, which teaches and influences the cosmetics industry

Tests précliniques et cliniques : un secteur en plein essor, marqueur de l’industrie cosmétique

The Cosmetotest symposium, dedicated to preclinical and clinical tests in the dermocosmetics industry, will be held on May 24-25, 2022, at ENS-Lyon. It is organized by SKINOBS and Cosmet-in Lyon in partnership with the SFI2C and the DIIP, and the support of the AURA-Region and CosmeBooste Project.
