Instrument tests

Instrumental tests of cosmetic products are a method of assessing the actual effect of the cosmetic product on the user’s skin and should be used to confirm marketing claims contained in cosmetic product labels.

Instrumental tests of cosmetic products are carried out under the supervision of a dermatologist or a specialist on a properly selected group of proband volunteers under strictly specified environmental conditions (temperature and humidity) and using specialised testing equipment. The choice of test persons and the parameters measured depend on the type of product, the intended effect and the marketing claims on the product label.
