Robert Nicholas was quoted in the January 14 issue of Product Liability Law 360 in an article regarding the growing "cosmeceuticals" industry. "When you work with clients who have products they want to bring to the market, frequently the question they ask is, 'What’s the fastest way to get it to the market?' There is a trade-off between speed to market and exclusivity or safety. In the absence of a safety issue, the FDA doesn't tend to aggressively regulate cosmetics. That's one reason why it's an attractive area for manufacturers, even if you have legitimate claims of 'pharmaceutical' results," Mr. Nicholas said.
