Cosmetic Testing & Personal Care Testing

Testing Cosmetics & Personal Care Products

Before a new cosmetic or personal care product hits the market, it needs to meet an extensive list of requirements and standards. Cosmetic safety testing is imperative for both our clients and the general public.

If you plan on bringing cosmetics or personal care products to the marketplace, you will need to set up initial cosmetic testing to reduce risk and ensure the longevity of your company.

Covering a range of products, CPT℠ will test and verify formulas based on their contents — but this is just the beginning.

Cosmetic Testing Capabilities

We possess a wide range of expertise in relation to cosmetic safety testing and the efficacy of personal care products.

Efficacy testing involves a series of procedures, completed during product research and development, which test the product’s intended purpose in order to substantiate the claims that appear on the product’s packaging and in advertisements.

Based on FDA and International standards, some of the products we regularly test include, but are certainly not limited to:

  • Moisturizers, lotions, cleansers
  • Acne and “maskne” face products
  • Makeup
    • Foundation, concealer, bronzer, blush, eyeliner, mascara, eyeshadow, lip products, etc.
  • Haircare products
  • Sunscreen

In addition, our experts are also available to discuss and address the most complex inquiries. These in-depth questions often circulate around unique or unusual products.

With more than 45 years of experience, we continue to offer the type of cosmetic testing services that is not only reliable and trusted, but also well-respected.

Our Departments

Based on the individual needs of our clients, we offer a wide range of support across various departments. Since initial product testing can be fairly complex in terms of a high-quality, safe and trusted product, our clients typically explore the benefits of numerous departments and areas of expertise, including:

  • Clinical — Efficacy trials can be performed for safety, consumer in-use, and to support claims such as ‘dermatologist-tested’ and ‘ophthalmologist-tested.’
  • In-Vitro Toxicology — Our In-Vitro Toxicology department assists clients when they are looking to perform non-animal (animal-free) toxicology testing.
  • Microbiology — Microbial contamination and preservative efficacy testing are key to cosmetic and OTC drug products.
  • Photobiology — From SPF and Water-Resistant claims to Photoallergy and Phototoxicity studies, CPT℠ is the world leader in sunscreen testing.
  • Analytical — From raw materials, product batch release, and stability shelf-life testing to “free-of” and low-level detection claims, our analytical department ensures that all requirements are met based on industry standards.
  • Consulting – Our consulting staff can perform GMP and GLP audits of your facilities or vendors, help create SOPs, develop testing programs, etc.
