One of the major tasks of our team is to continually add new laboratories to both platforms.

The referencing of new testing laboratories, consultants or device manufacturers follow a precise process with qualified exchanges around each expertise. Morover the platforms necessit a regular update due to technology, claims or laboratory changes.

Since September, the product management team is hard at work interviewing users, creating a beta-tester community for the redesign of the Skinobs website.

🧑‍🤝‍🧑#4 | What’s happening at Skinobs ?

The Skinobs team was present at in-cosmetics Asia, who took place in Bangkok, Thailand. It was the 2nd edition of “We are testing”

For 3 days, we met and exchanged with evaluation managers coming from the Asian region about the latest testing innovations on the Asian market. It was a very enriching experience, and we really enjoyed exhibiting at the show with the team from Syres Singapore, the expert of consumer testing and sensory analysis. Many thanks to them!

The post-show webinar on November 16 was a great success. It provided an opportunity to debrief and highlight the most important topics of the show. Thank you to all participants for your interest!

🌎 Eco-responsibility at #cosmétique trade shows! Last May in New York 🍏, Skinobs launched a new collaborative way to make visible the players in the field of #tests: instrumentation manufacturers, test laboratories or consultants through the various trade shows of the cosmetics industry.

#1. It was while discussing with the StratiCELL team that this idea germinated at the beginning of 2023, very quickly Martin Baraibar from OxiProteomics and Fabrice Monti from Microfactory joined forces at the 1st edition in New York with a joint “We-Are-Testing” booth allowing them to present their expertise to the #cosméticiens North #américains.

#2. The n°2 edition of “We Are testing” was held in Bangkok in November for in-cosmetics Asia with Syres Singapore as co-exhibitor. The 2025 edition is in pre-booking with 4 co-exhibitors.

#3. This new adventure continues with a new 40m2 booth scheduled in New York for the Suppliers Days on May 1-2, 2024 with : Microfactory, CIDP , Biox Systems Ltd, Syres, Neuron experts and LTDS. The booth is sold out! 🍀 With this enthusiasm in mind, we are preparing the 2025 edition of the Suppliers Days with 8 co-exhibitors!

🚩 This is followed by:

  • in-cosmetics #Korea in July,
  • in-cosmetics Latin America.

💡 We are Testing it’s you!

“We-Are-Testing” is a practical, eco-responsible and dynamic way for testing players, large or small, to be present at the events that matter in the sector.
