Dosage of AHAs in your cosmetic products

You wish to measure the alphas hydroxyacids present in your cosmetic products according to the regulations in force

Alphas hydroxy acids (AHA) are fruit acids that have quickly become popular with cosmetics manufacturers. Alphas hydroxy acids are found in sugar cane, citrus fruits, mountain ash and grapes.

These active ingredients allow for cell renewal, skin hydration and stimulate collagen production. However, the concentration of fruit acids must be limited in order to avoid skin irritation.

The dosage of alphas hydroxy acids (AHA) may be necessary to validate the conformity of a cosmetic product. To answer these problems, you are looking for the cooperation of a reliable and independent analysis laboratory with high technical added value.
