So, I have an ingredient that’s superior than an existing ingredient. Currently, I am looking to do the clinical trial to back up this theory. So my question is
1. What is the fastest and most cost effective way to do the research in the cosmetic world (my initial reaction is to go back to the school I attended and pay the lab fees and do the research myself with the assistance of current interested students).
2. Once (I’m optimistic) we prove superior effectiveness of this new ingredient, can I just add it to my current formulation? If not, what’s the right course of action?
