Expert group appraisals


COSMEPAR’s experience was shaped through time and has been built up in innumerable studies, projects and specific cases encountered since it was founded.

One thing is certain: Safety in cosmetics is a combination of converging factors which cannot conceivably be comprehended in isolation.

COSMEPAR’s analysis is global in nature; it contributes to the project skills that derive from different scientific fields within one and the same approach.

You can therefore find our test packs which pool the technical skills of each laboratory:

  • Safety pack:

Simultaneous optimisation of the TT (Tolerance Test) Challenge test schedules.

Objective: to reduce the sequencing times.

Purpose: to make available the results covering an average period of 30 days.

  • MUT pack:

Microbiological stability test of a formula by use

Objective: To provide a safe solution when the formula tested is not compatible with the standardised microbiology tests (challenge test)

Purpose: To process the usage data to overcome the uncertainties of the Challenge test

  • Usage Test Pack:

Analysis of the stability of the formula at the end of the use tests: iterative tolerance, validation of the claims, microbiological cleanliness, doses of the preservatives, influence of the packaging in fine.

Objective: to process the data collected after the product is returned for use.

Purpose: to monitor more closely the safety of the product under actual conditions of use.
