18 PAGES OF EASY-TO-READ GUIDANCE AND INSIGHT:
- Designing your skin and eye irritation testing strategy
Which test should you use for regulatory safety assessment or to understand the potency of a new product in development? What classifications can you obtain from the different tests available?
- Supporting ‘vegan tested’ claims
Many in vitro tests use animal components and so can’t truly be said to uphold the vegan philosophy. So what’s the solution?
- How 3D human tissue models are used in irritation testing
We look at the different models on the market and explain how they are used in the laboratory
- Interpreting the OECD’s Integrated Approaches to Testing and Assessment
What’s the official difference between irritation, corrosion and sensitisation and when should you select a top down or bottom up approach?
- Product comparisons and predicting potency
With so many ultra-mild ingredients on the market, how can you detect subtle differences between your product and others in your own category, or those of competitors?
- Techniques for testing sensitive areas
New animal-free technologies are being developed at a pace now, and specialist tests are available to test irritation of the mouth and gums, respiratory airway and vagina.
- Case study: Creating a USP around mildness for a range of novel surfactants
We share the results of a ground-breaking study for surfactant specialists Lankem and how they obtained robust data to prove the mildness of their new BioLoop range.
