XCellR8 provides a wide range of in vitro tests to cosmetics, personal care and household product companies and their ingredient suppliers. We help companies to develop safe and innovative new products, to comply with legislation, and to adopt animal-free testing strategies that are both scientifically advanced and ethically sound.
Our UK-based lab is GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) accredited, which means that we are able to provide companies with test results that can be used at an international regulatory level to demonstrate product safety.
We have become the “go-to” experts for in vitro testing and work alongside companies to provide data for both product safety and efficacy / claim support.
