So cosmetics are still safe and effective


The meteoric evolution of cosmetic testing

With 25 years of national and international experience in the field of cosmetics skin assessment, we are witnessing several phenomena:

  • Increasing regulatory constraints,
  • Sophistication of the instrumentation offer,
  • Increase in the number and specialization of tests suppliers,
  • Need of a quick and efficient information source on instrumentation and test suppliers news,
  • Waiting for expertise on the part of evaluation responsible,
  • Constant search for innovation.


Evaluation tests in the heart of cosmetics development process

Since the first developments in the R&D and formulation labs until the regulatory, marketing and communication departments, the question of putting forward the evaluation of finished products or ingredients is crucial.

For a given product, a list of issues related to testing becomes essential whether analytical testing, toxicology, tolerance, sensory analysis or efficacy in vitro or in vivo.


A structured and innovative sector

Evaluation testing is as old as cosmetics themselves and has always represented the quality and safety of these products. In recent years, the testing sector is flourishing : manufacturers of instrumentation, testing laboratories, consultants and experts; all place their skills at the service of reliability and innovation.


Skinobs project at the crossroads of skills, experience and networks
