Cosmetology & Wellness: A Review Of Practices, Products, Risks & The Standardization Needs For Africa
The review in this document demonstrates that cosmetology and wellness have not taken root as professional areas in many African countries despite contributing significantly to their revenue streams and employment creation.
We need harmonized standards to mainstream cosmetology and wellness into the formal economies of African countries and to give the sectors the impetus for consideration as viable economic activities. The standards will further stimulate informed cosmetic product consumption as well as facilitate building of professionals who can trade their services beyond their localities.
