Testing consists of several stages: physicochemical and microbiological testing, express-testing at “harsh” conditions (critical temperatures from -20ºС to +50ºС).

Product efficiency testing and clinical trials

Efficiency is being checked by cosmetics product testing method, when physiological parameters of the skin are being measured after cosmetics product usage. During the test following physiological parameters of the skin are measured:

  • Moisture
  • Oiliness
  • Transepidermal water loss
  • Temperature
  • pH
  • Erythema
  • Melanin

Each product development and tests are thoroughly controlled by medical specialists: dermatologists, ophthalmologists, toxicologists and, if necessary, other specialists.

Consumer product test

This testing method is used  to verify the satisfaction of consumer claims for a specific product. Typically, the test is done in 4 age groups, 80 people each. Only those products with at least 90% positive indicators from each age group are approved for manufacturing.

Design
