Dr. Leslie Rylander comes to ToxStrategies’ Food and Consumer Products Practice following a career of more than three decades with a global manufacturer of consumer, over-the-counter health and beauty products. During the first half of her tenure, she assessed the safety of new ingredients, technologies, and formulations of beauty products (personal cleansing, hair care) and over-the-counter health-care products at a global scale. Subsequently, she helped establish a corporate department responsible for global product safety surveillance and served at an executive level in safety surveillance and analysis. Her most recent work focused on exposures of children to liquid laundry detergent packs—work that she presented to professional organizations in the United States and Europe and that was published in the literature under non-company authorship.
Dr. Rylander was certified in General Toxicology by the American Board of Toxicology from 1990 through 2015.
