  • Patch test
  • Skin sensitization test
  • Eye Irritation test for surfactant products
  • Comedogenicity/Acnegenicity potential testing (to claim “non-comedogenic” on the product)

Examples of efficacy/claim substantiation tests :

  • SPF & UVA rating (for sunscreen products)
  • Water-resistance tests
  • Skin hydration claims
  • Anti-ageing claims (e.g. evaluation of improvement of wrinkle lines number & depth, improvement of skin viscoelastic properties … etc.)
  • Anti-hyperpigmentation claims (e.g. dark spots and skin tone evaluation)
  • Anti-acne claims (e.g. evaluation of changes in pore visibility, skin shininess, improvement of acne lesions … etc.)
