EPA and L’Oréal research collaboration
EPA and L’Oréal announce research collaboration on toxicity forecast. Three-year collaboration will examine if the EPA’s chemical toxicity forecaster (ToxCast™) could enrich the set of alternative/predictive methods developed by L’Oréal R&I for 30 years.

“For more than 30 years, we have invested in Predictive Evaluation for Safety, in other words, animal-free toxicology. Our L’Oréal Predictive Evaluation Center‘s activity is based on new-generation tests, using reconstructed human tissues, automated platforms, molecular modeling… In this perspective, the ToxCast program from EPA could enrich our testing platforms and help us to predict earlier the safety of substances for our products”, said Laurent Attal, Executive Vice-President L’OREAL Research & Innovation.

L’Oréal Research & Innovation teams combine the data assets from a great number of tools. Their 100 years’ patrimony, knowledge of chemical substances and formulations, tissue engineering expertise and alternative methods, are the masterpieces of Predictive Evaluation Strategy for Safety and Efficacy.
