Is this webinar for me?

This webinar is for people like you who work behind the scenes for cosmetic brands. You should attend if your role is any of the following:

  • CEO or other C-suite executive

  • Investor in a cosmetics company

Decisions about enrolling a brand's products in a clinical trial are typically made by representatives of the brand, such as executives or managers. These representatives may be responsible for evaluating the benefits and return on investment of enrolling the brand's products in a clinical trial, as well as the resources and budget required to do so. They may also consider the regulatory requirements and ethical considerations involved in conducting clinical research. If you’re interested in giving your brand a competitive edge in the highly competitive wellness and beauty market, attending this webinar is right for you.
