Studies areconducted in a monitored and controlled environment by our highly trained technicians. Our instrumentation relevant to sunscreen product testing includes:
- Solar Simulators
- Spa pools for water resistant testing
Sphere Spectrophotometry for in-vitro determination of UVA Ratio
- Boots Star
Wavelength and Photostability Testing.
Instrumentation is calibrated according the requirements of all major international protocols including ISO , Australia, FDA, China COLIPA and International.
Our close involvement with the development of the current and future ISO Sunscreen Standards has held us at the forefront of sunscreen testing technology.
