    I wonder what test data we should present for a new hand cream product to meet FDA regulations. And what company do you recommend for that job?

    You don’t need to present data, but you will need to have on file:

    (1). Preservative Challenge Test Results indicating a Pass

    (2) Cosmetic Ingredient Safety Report

      Thank you for the information. I am in talks with Certified Labs, so I will ask them for these 2 tests you recommend. And probably, stability test as well. For the second test, i.e., the Cosmetic Ingredient Safety Report, how does the test work? I can provide them the ingredients used in the product, but I still cannot figure out how they would test. It would be great if you could shed some insight into the process. Thanks.

    Cosmetic Ingredient Safety Report is not a physical test. It is a compilation of the toxicology of each ingredient in the formula and an assessment of the safety of the product. I offer MoCRA compliance services and can prepare a CISR for you.
