Instrumental efficacy tests of skin and hair for cosmetics is an objective, indisputable assessment of the effectiveness and efficiency of products (confirmation of the declared properties). It is also a non-invasive way to determine the condition of the skin and/or hair before and after using the product. These tests are performed in the laboratory under strictly defined ambient conditions, i.e. temperature and relative humidity.

Using non – invasive testing methods, we confirm the effectiveness of the products on a panel of testers selected depending on the specificity of the product.

We have professional, top-class, state-of-the-art equipment for measuring skin parameters, e.g. brands Courage+Khazaka electronic GmbH and Solar Light. We obtain precise results that are used to confirm marketing declarations. The results are presented quantitatively and using photos and 3D images.

In order to assess the effectiveness of the product, instrumental tests of cosmetics are performed before and after application, but it is also worth examining how some parameters, such as skin hydration, are maintained over time. In connection with the above, so that customers can get to know the operation of their products even better, we also offer apparatus tests for 5 or even 8 hours.
