Thanks to the efforts of the Confédération nationale de l'esthétique parfumerie (Cnep), the Claire application developed by the Fédération des entreprises de la beauté (Febea), which deciphers cosmetics ingredients, will be integrated into school curricula for CAP, BP, Bac Pro and BTS students in aesthetics, cosmetics and perfumery by the start of the 2023 academic year.
Developed by Febea in 2020 with the support of the Société française de cosmétologie (SFC), the Claire application provides reliable, educational scientific information on over 29,000 ingredients found in cosmetic products. It is designed for professionals in the sector (sales advisors, hairdressers, beauticians, etc.) and consumers alike.
The Claire application lets you search for information on a particular ingredient, or scan a product's ingredient list to find out what it contains. It does not give any rating or opinion on the ingredient, but only popularized, reliable and verified scientific information, to enable consumers to make up their own minds.
From the start of the 2023 academic year, under the impetus of the Cnep, the Claire application will be integrated into the guides accompanying the reference materials for the national education system's aesthetics, cosmetics and perfumery diplomas, given to trainers. Over 12,000 students will be trained in the use of this application. The aim is to provide them with an easy-to-use tool that will enable them to quickly answer all the questions customers ask about the composition of cosmetic products.
As part of the national training program, the Claire application was presented to all French inspectors.
