Laboratory for the determination of BHA in cosmetic products

You wish to measure the Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA) present in your cosmetic products according to the regulations in force

Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA) are fruit acids that have quickly become popular with cosmetic manufacturers. They are fat-soluble compounds soluble in oil.

These active ingredients allow cell renewal, skin hydration and stimulate collagen production. However, one must be careful with the dosage of Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA). The concentration of fruit acids must be limited in order to avoid skin irritation.

The dosage of Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA) may be necessary to validate the conformity of a cosmetic product or in the case of a failure.
