Skinovation is a research center focusing on the development and testing of personal care and cosmetic products.
We aim to help to develop innovative products and evaluate their safety and efficacy. We offer a wide variety of services such as product development and evaluation of product active ingredients and formulations through in vitro assays, as well as customized study design according to clients’ specific needs. Skinovation is also able to help companies to test their product claims (e.g. hypoallergenic, tear-free product, gentle free product for babies, etc.) and conduct consumer product testing to test the efficacy of a product through real consumer in-use tests.
This center is led by experts who have a good understanding in clinical study design and product formulations, and our laboratories are well-equipped with modern lab instruments that allow us to perform a wide range of analyses.
