The Modernization of Cosmetics Regulation Act of 2022 (MoCRA) has been a key topic for the cosmetics industry, both locally and internationally. MoCRA is unique in many ways when compared to other cosmetic regulations around the globe. However, the common objective remains ensuring the safety of cosmetic products through a set of requirements, including Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). Consumers on the other hand, are increasingly demanding transparency to easily identify Natural, Vegan and Vegetarian products, shaping new trends for the industry.


The objective of this webinar is to decode the requirements of MoCRA, expand on third party GMP certification through ISO 22716 and introduce V-Label certification for vegan cosmetics.
