As Head of Scientific Services, I look after CTPA's Scientific team.  This team helps all CTPA members, including manufacturers, brand owners, raw material suppliers and service providers, with advice and support on topics relating to ingredients, manufacture, safety assessment and Cosmetovigilance.  This team founded CTPA's sustainability strategy and leads this ground-breaking initiative. 


I represent CTPA on several committees at Cosmetics Europe, which allows me to input the views and concerns from CTPA members and to ensure that our members can quickly receive the latest information.  I chair the Expert Team Ingredient Monitoring and Assessment committee at Cosmetics Europe.  I am also actively involved in advocacy with the UK Government on issues concerning cosmetic ingredients and its wider chemicals strategyas well as contributing to the CTPA Communications Strategy.
