Improve time-to-market thanks to Coptis Lab software

Coptis Lab is an integrated system for formulation development and regulatory affairs. The software:

  • includes the various phases of the development of a cosmetic formula, from the marketing brief to the regulationfile, all linked to a project planning component.
  • centralises both the information on the cosmetic raw materials (specifications management, certificates of analysis, technical and regulatory data) and formulas (tests history, calculation of the formula costing and quantity to weight, operating mode per phase, batch number, followed by the tests to perform).
  • ensures optimal global regulatory compliance. Coptis Lab allows the formulator to be alerted of a regulatory issue from the very first stage of the formulation process. Formulators have immediate access to the accumulated data of all the INCIs for each raw material in the formula under development. Identifying authorised and non-authorised markets for each INCI saves months of development time.
  • allows the customisation of formula reports and generation of the Cosmetic Dossier (Product Information File, PIF).
  • also includes the CNPC functionality Management of the ‘Category and Frame-formula’ section according to mandatory EU regulations from July 11th, 2013.
