The company facilities consist of R&D, Quality Control and formulation laboratories. The Innovation Company controls all raw materials as well as all final products independently with the only exception of microbiological analyses, which are subcontracted.
All the laboratories are equipped for chromatography, spectroscopy, microscopy, rheology and some specific analyses like surface charge and SPF in vitro measurements.
We welcome our customers to work together with us in our laboratories to discover our products and develop new products with highest performance.
|Dermalab® Skinlab Combo |
DermaLab® Combo is a non-invasive method, which makes it possible multiparameter skin analysis. Indeed, with only one device, it offers the possibility to measure many skin parameters such as elasticity, hydration, sebum or skin color thanks to a probe associated.
|Vivascope® 1500 |
Vivascope® 1500 confocal laser scanning microscopes is designed for in vivo and ex vivo use. Confocal laser scanning microscopy opens a “window into the skin” without being invasive - i.e. without damaging the skin. This innovative imaging method depicts the structure of skin. The confocal image shows each individual layer of skin in horizontal sections. For the first time, an optical biopsy in real time is possible. Confocal laser scanning microscopy consists of one single step, which depicts all skin structures in microscopic accuracy from the epidermis to the upper reticular dermis using non-invasive technology.
|Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) with EDX |
SEM provides detailed high-resolution images of the sample by rastering a focused electron beam across the surface and detecting secondary or backscattered electron signal. An Energy Dispersive X-Ray Analyser, EDX, is also used to provide elemental identification and quantitative compositional information. This is an ideal technique to analyze the distribution of physical UV-filters in an emulsion or on the skin.
|Labsphere® UV-2000S |
With Labsphere’s UV-2000S it is possible to achieve accurate in-vitro SPF/UVA-Protection Factor analysis of sun care products developed to receive the “very high” sun protection label. It also has new software, which allows meeting ISO 24443:2012 standard.
|Suntest CPS+ |
The Suntest solar simulator, type CPS+ is used to measure the photostability of UV-filters. A solar simulator (also artificial sun) is a device that provides illumination approximating natural sunlight. The purpose of the solar simulator is to provide a controllable indoor test facility under laboratory conditions.
|Zetasizer Nano Z |
The Zetasizer Nano Z is the perfect system for measuring zeta potential and electrophoretic mobility of colloids and nanoparticles. With zeta potential measurements, it is possible to predict the stability of emulsions, as well as the aggregation or flocculation of particles, notably physical UV-filters. It is also one way to shorten the stability tests of emulsions.
The CM-600d Spectrophotometer is a handheld, portable measurement instrument designed to evaluate the color and appearance of various samples. This high precision, reliable spectrophotometer allows users to evaluate, reproduce, and control the color of pigments. It can also be used to evaluate the transparency of physical UV-filters on the skin. It can also be used to measure the colour changes after irradiation.
|Optical Microscope |
The optical microscope, often referred to as light microscope, is a type of microscope, which uses visible light and a system of lenses to magnify images of small samples. This is an ideal method rapidly evaluate an emulsion structure and stability, which are important when analyzing SPF in vitro values.
