    What do you mean by penetration test?

    Normally for deodorants, you need a Sniff Test which gives you the amount of time you can print on the label ( 72 h) …

    you need an epicutan test to Evaluate if your formulation is harmful to the skin ( Europe)

    you need a Mibi test if you’re not having a lot of alcohol inside.

    never heard of a Penetration test and would be interested to know what that means.

      could you tell me what exactly this test is? is it to analyze the amount of deo that penetrates throughout the skin?

        No - it is a QC method that assures the stick is sufficiently “hard” as judged by depth of penetration using a probe.
