Beautiful Brows has benefited from the regulatory, technical and formulation expertise provided by Stacey Irving Consultancy, now Global Cosmetic Developments for a number of years. Stacey provides a very supportive service to us, ensuring that the products we develop are fully compliant with EU regulation requirements and also to ensure we meet export and specific regulation requirements for Countries we export to outside of Europe.
I have turned to Global Cosmetic Developments in a difficult moment of our cosmetic product development. An innovative compound we used was unstable in the formulations we had. GCD overcame all the issues we faced and provided us with a new, stable cream formula developed from a very beginning. Also, GCD took care for all the formal requirements for us to have the cream registered in the EU.
I first worked with Stacey when we needed technical support to pull together Product Information Files to a format set by customer with little warning. She quickly proved herself to be very accurate and responsive freelance support with excellent communication skills and was very proactive to close out files in timely fashion. She was able to work effectively with internal and external contacts. In my position as Head of Sourcing I worked closely with Stacey throughout this time and found her to be enthusiastic, intelligent, able to deliver on promises made. Her pace of work and ability to pick up a job and with minimal supervison deliver, has made her a “go to” person when something needs doing

Stacey worked as a freelance consultant in an advisory capacity liaising between my company and suppliers obtaining bill of materials, undertaking product safety assessments and overseeing product and packaging testing when necessary. Stacey is also qualified to advise suppliers on ingredients used to establish good formulations of cosmetic products and good manufacturing process. The service and work undertaken by Stacey has resulted in my companies products becoming fully complaint under the new cosmetic regulations and REACH regulations.

Going forward Stacey still acts as a consultant and continues to ensure all new products and existing products remain compliant. Stacey has recently added a responsible person service to her list of services which is something my company will be using in the future.
Stacey has been our most important consultant and formulator. Our new brand of skin care had exacting standards, timescales and complexity. The whole project of 16 main formulations and add on products, over the full spectrum of face and body skin care was delivered on time and to budget with a very low level of revisions. Stacey's skill and technical knowledge and worldwide expert understanding of ingredients and regulations has been first class and professional.
