  • Skin Care Ingredients and Cosmetic Claims Substantiation

    Posted by beautysci on September 26, 2018 at 1:57 am


    Could you recommend resources to learn more about cosmetic claim substantiation (in vitro and in vivo) for skin care ingredients? I work at an ingredients manufacturer and want to learn more about how I can best provide substantiation for skin care ingredients (actives & functional raw materials) via in vitro & in vivo methods. I welcome any recommendations for books, articles, experts, testing houses, courses, advice, etc. 

    Thanks so much for your help!

    If you are in central North America I recommend Bria Research Labs in Libertyville, Illinois. [] These folks are old hands at claims substantiation.

    Careprost is made in India but Careprost is available for sale in the USA, and there are several reliable Careprost USA sellers like Meds4care. Meds4care is an online pharmacy that I have been shopping for my meds for the past one year. My overall experience has been on Meds4care, and do not buy my medicines from elsewhere so I can help you with the pricing details on this website.
