Active Ingredient Formulation Analysis

Active ingredient formulation analysis for quality control and for insight into product characteristcs

Intertek provides testing and formulation analysis of active ingredients for a wide range of products and formulations. This analysis can be used to compare formulations across a product range, or for competitor benchmarking studies.

Some active ingredients must be gauged in terms of their potency and efficacy, and their environmental impact. Some active ingredients are monitored, and may be subject to regulatory and safety requirements.

Our expert laboratories are equipped with the means to analyse and evaluate active ingredients ranging from surfactants to solvents.
