Cosmetic clinical trial expertise in clinical safety and efficacy testing of cosmetics, beauty products and devices to support claims and demonstrate conformity with regulations

Cosmetic clinical trials are critical to boosting innovation in the fast-moving cosmetics and healthcare product sectors. To meet the challenges of the marketplace, ever-changing trends and consumer needs, high-quality, effective cosmetic clinical studies of your products are key to ensuring the clinical efficacy and safety of cosmetics and personal care products whilst providing validated claim support. Robust clinical evaluation can deliver a clear competitive advantage generating substantial product claims. 

Our team can help you successfully navigate this challenging business climate, bringing our 25 years of experience to deliver tailored end-to-end clinical trials for beauty products, expertise in clinical studies for cosmetics, sun protection, and more.

We deliver clinical investigations to Good Clinical Practices (GCP) under a clinical research agreement issued by the Health Ministry of France. Our clinical study centre has modular technical spaces (with controlled temperature and humidity) for an optimised study subject movement where our volunteers’ comfort and well-being are a focus.

Our clinical research team which includes project managers, clinical research associates, quality assurance team and expert clinicians (dermatologists, allergists, ophthalmologists, dentists, technicians, phlebologists, physicians), focus on protecting the safety and wellbeing of our human subjects.
