Container-content compatibility study for cosmetics in the laboratory

Cosmetics manufacturers are faced with important issues regarding the conformity of their packaging when a new product is launched on the market.

They are required to ensure the safety and quality of their cosmetic packaging, in order to avoid the risks of migration, oxidation or failure of their products.

However, there is no real reference standard for cosmetic container-content compatibility, but the European Regulation 1223/2009 can serve as a reference for container-content compatibility.

In order to meet the specific needs of your cosmetic formulations and packaging, FILAB can assist you.
