LONG-TERM TESTING Cosmetics Laboratory needed for testing of multiple skin care projects in development. Quotes are needed on the following analytical services on finished released and excipient testing:
Release testing of Pramoxine Hydrochloride
Release testing of Hydrocortisone
Release testing of Zinc Oxide
Release testing of Titanium Dioxide
Release testing of Aluminum Sesquichlorohydrate
Finished good testing in a lotion and a spray
Finished good testing of in an ointment
Finished good testing of Zinc Oxide (17.0%) in a lotion
Finished good testing of Titanium Dioxide (2.3%) in a lotion
Finished good testing in a cream
Aside from release testing for the APIs listed above, do you routinely do release testing for cosmetic excipients, such as peptides, vitamins, humectants, etc...? I ask this question, because until we have a QC lab up and running, we will need to partner with outside labs to complete this testing. Would there be any savings if we were to submit multiple samples at once?

Skincare company needs dermatology clinical research laboratory for development of a protective cream for prolonged work in gloves that helps avoid excessive sweating on the skin of hands, restrains the growth of harmful microorganisms (bacteriostatic effect), and improves microcirculation in the vessels of the skin of hands, protects cells from harmful factors. This product has 3 main properties, which need to be confirmed: 1) Antiperspirant effect 2) Improvement of cutaneous respiration 3) Bacteriostatic effect We are planning to register this product as a cosmetic product. So we have to confirm these claims with test reports by 1) Antiperspirant effect was confirmed by gravimetric method and method the probe of Minor (iodine-starch test). The effect of the product was shown to be lasting up to 4 hours. 2) Skin respiration (cutaneous respiration) is the property, which includes all kinds of exchange processes in the skin (supplying the skin with oxygen), metabolic processes (synthesis of collagen and elastin), regeneration processes and improving the viability of the skin cells when exposed to harmful environmental factors. These properties are provided by the 2 components of product (caffeine and ginger extract) increasing ATP synthesis in the cell (under the influence of acetylglutamine), as well as the microcirculation in the skin. The effect of product to improve cutaneous respiration was confirmed by laser Doppler flowmetry. 3) Bacteriostatic effect the temporary suppression of the ability of microorganisms to reproduce (not the same as antibacterial action!). This effect is side-effect, because the composition of the product contains no antibacterial ingredients. The effect is achieved by the common action of the antiperspirant complex.
