Cosmetic and personal care products are made using a wide variety of materials and formulations, making it impossible to establish a standard protocol applicable to all. Regulators recommend that stability tests be adapted according to the type of product and intended use, including reasonably foreseeable storage conditions.

Our stability assessments cover the following parameters and are based on international guidelines:

  • Organoleptic and sensory properties: appearance, color, odor and flavor, as applicable
  • Microbiological properties: microbial count and preservation challenge test
