The analyses of your cosmetics laboratory


Your laboratory carries out various microbiological, chemical and physico-chemical analyses on a wide range of cosmetic products, i.e. skin products (creams, make-up, suncare products, etc.), hygiene products (soaps, dental products, deodorants), hair products (cleaning, maintenance, dyes) and perfumes and varnishes.

Among the analyses, your laboratory :

  • checks for the absence of allergens or other undesirable substances (parabens, silicones, etc.)
  • checks for residues and pollutants
  • carries out physico-chemical tests and microbiological analyses
  • assesses the interaction of cosmetic products with their packaging
  • studies the stability of products in order to establish a use-by date
  • conducts dermatological and clinical tests

Your expectations in terms of Quality Control


Manufacturers must ensure the conformity of their cosmetic products, i.e. guarantee that they comply with legislative and regulatory requirements and present no danger to health. 
In this context, it is important that the cosmetics industry and cosmetics analysis providers inter-calibrate to ensure the comparability of their measurement results.
