Cosmetics & Personal Care


Cosmetic products can be prone to microbiological attack and preservatives are often added to prevent this deterioration.

We offer a range of test methods and expert advice to aid our clients in the safe preservation of their cosmetic products. Testing methods relevant to the Cosmetic Products Regulation 1223/2009 include:

Test Tube

Preservative Efficacy Testing (PET)

We undertake efficacy testing of these preservatives using a range of valid PET methods to suit the clients and products needs.


Quality Control & Batch Testing

We also carry out routine batch screening of products for microbial contamination and suitability as required by the Cosmetics Regulations.
