Special Issue Information
This Special Issue is dedicated to the application of non-animal methods for the testing of cosmetic ingredients. Changes in regulatory trends worldwide have been pushing the progress and application of non-animal strategies to evaluate the safety of cosmetic ingredients by reducing, replacing, and refining the use of animal models. In this Special Issue, we welcome research papers and reviews on the state of non-animal methods, their application, and challenges. With an increased interest in natural ingredients and the CBD hype, manuscripts covering the safety of natural products are particularly welcomed.
