About Us

Hello, we’re PCR

Personal Care Regulatory (PCR) are a friendly team of 'in house' cosmetics regulatory, toxicology, compliance and quality experts, offering a comprehensive range of services backed up by the latest safety software and an extensive database of detailed toxicological profiles. It might seem tempting to turn to cheap solutions to 'get the job done' as quickly as possibly. At PCR, it’s more than just paperwork and box ticking. It's about understanding what your business needs and delivering it brilliantly. This is a regulatory company with a difference; experts in compliance across the supply chain. From trademark in-house safety assessment software which enables a faster and more detailed CPSR, bespoke end-to-end compliance service, through to expert label copywriting service, we offer a full range of high quality services and ‘wrap around’ solutions, tailored to growing beauty brands.

We work in partnership with you, acting as your ‘in house’ experts, giving you the confidence to take your brand to the next level. The highest standards, delivered by a team of supportive experts. Above all, we strive to make the process as straightforward as possible, at great value, every time.

About the founder

Dr Mojgan Moddaresi (AKA ‘Dr M’) has over 20 years of experience in the pharmaceutical, biopharma and cosmetics industries.

She is a pharmacist in training (PharmD) and proudly holds the accolade of receiving the first ever phD in Cosmetic Science from the London College of Fashion in collaboration with Kings’ College, London.

Dr M has built on her scientific training and background with extensive experience working with a range of brands. This has led to a unique approach in helping brands to grow and thrive, by giving them access to help and support usually only reserved for larger businesses.

Knowing that great compliance and quality support helps a brand to grow faster without hiccups or headaches, she identified one key insight. The best support is usually delivered by a large ‘in house’ team of toxicology, claims and regulatory experts. Smaller brands had previously had to rely on patchy consultation or manufacturer services, and the idea for PCR was born. A comprehensive compliance company which used the latest in data and IT to support a team of experts, offering end-to-end support for growing brands.

She still believes that good compliance across claims, safety and quality are the foundations of a strong and differentiated brand. Dr M and her team have a shared passion for product safety, and delivering a service that gives peace of mind to ambitious brands.
