Pharmaceutical & Cosmetic Review July 2020

The July issue of Pharmaceutical & Cosmetic Review features the first locally made biodegradable packaging for the South African cosmetics industry. We also explore safe and responsible sun protection in our bumper sun care feature and in the pharma focus on CAMs and health supplements, we check out the latest developments to emerge from the recent down-scheduling of CBD by SAHPRA. And with the COVID-19 pandemic forcing everyone to wear masks, eye makeup trends are in the spotlight in our colour cosmetics feature.
