I work In R&D for one of the major global cosmetics and pharmacutical companies, 50% of my work is reformulation of existing products.

Currently we need to reformulate to remove Parabens (a preservative system) from some cosmetics as the EU has banned them
Faye - my husband also works in R&D and its becoming a total nightmare, some of the products they ban are totally safe but one person in one country takes a dislike to something and its going to have a knock on effect. Sometimes the risk is only if you grossy misuse the product and even then maybe one in a billion chance of risk. They are having 'closed door' meetings to discuss and ban these products so not even enough scientific argument in many of them.
I'm all for safety but the lunatics are taking over the asylum and in the agricultural market where farming in some countries is a constant battle against bugs and diseases starvation could become a real issue as it can take years and huge amounts of money to formulate and register anything new.

So true. It's the same with 'human' things too now. Things being taken off the shelf because there is 'a risk that if you don't use it properly it might possibly do you a teeny bit of harm'. With all the compensation claims companies out there now, I think manufacturers are so petrified of being sued for something......

One of the products i'm working on is a medical device and you should see the risk assessments we have to do and the size of the regulatory files we have to submit to a notified body in order to be able to put our products on the market.
The last dossier I put together was taken away on a pallet

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

I recommend Bickmore's gall salve for small dents and dings on horses. It is a very old product used when collars rubbed or saddle girths rub. It is recommended to treat the area with the gall salve but continue to use the animal. It really grows hair back thick.

I dont think that people have any idea just how much goes into these products and even then they can collapse before they even get onto the market for some tiny reason
The legal people make more money out of things than anyone else does I'm sure
I was responsible for H&S in my last 3 jobs and it made me so paranoid I now see potential accidents in just about everything I look at
I must be mad to own horses!!!

Are you talking about Purple Lotion Spray? If so, we've used it for as long as I can remember out here and I swear by it, it's some of the BEST stuff you'll ever find!

I love the spray! It is called just "blue spray" or "blu spray" around here and it works miracles with small wounds, scrapes, bruises, etc. It also helps keeping insects away from an open wound during the summer. I prefer a simple PVP iodine spray if I don't need that much active desinfecting as the blue spray offers, but it is still always in the barns' medicine box.

That's it. We've always called it and heard it called 'blue lotion spray' out here... and it comes in a different type of bottle, but that's it.
