    @PhilGeis @Perry @Anca_Formulator, I'll extend my thanks to Phil here too, but I have to add I saw a demo of the Good Face Project software while at Cosmoprof North America last week and it impressed the heck out of me. Check it out at www.thegoodfaceproject.com

    @chemicalmatt - Interesting. I see they have the Red, Yellow, Green highlighting of ingredients. Is that like the EWG skin deep database?

  • chemicalmattchemicalmatt Member, Professional Chemist
    Nope, you plug in your formula like an Excel sheet and the software scheme tells you if an ingredient is allowed in that nation, or beyond CIR allowable limits or disrespected by Sephora, goop, Target, Whole Paycheck, etc. It makes no judgements, only checks against all nations' laws and all those retailer ingredient sanctions. All at same time and updated monthly.

    @chemicalmatt What is pricing like? I get all that data through paid access to UL Prospector. Of course in a less user-friendly yet acceptable manner.

    The GoodFace Project can be quite expensive ... on the order of $20,000 per month.

    At 20,000 a month I'll stick with UL Prospector.

    You guys are off by a factor of 10. Its $2000 monthly for a 6-month starter, even less for an annual subscription. The Clean Beauty peeps should find it most useful as it conveys and checks against all those greenie-groups' sanctions. Wouldn't want to piss off Gwynn Paltrow with your emulsifier now would  you?

    Well, for my needs I will stick with UL Prospector. I get all that with the paid version which is a great deal less and it meets our needs.

    Looking at thegoodfaceproject.com website it treats Californian regulations differently to the rest of the USA regulations.

    Can anyone advise what these differences are? I can only assume California has other requirements on top of the FDA regs.
