Skin safety is one of the most important goals of the consumer products industry. The cosmetics industry is a lead developer and end-user of new approach methods (NAMs) to replace previously used animal experiments. New human clinical evidence is only available when there is strong justification. The first step in product decision making should always be to consider using all currently available evidence from data and models including read-across. Additionally, new data from tiered testing approaches including NAMs applied to formulations can provide values for safety assessment with increased confidence and reduced uncertainties.
