Cosmetics & Sun Protection

For global standards and requirements, your sun protection factor ratings are only as good as the instrument you use to measure your products. Why take the risk?

Labsphere works closely with industry leaders to develop products that allow for the fast, easy and correct preparation and in-vitro measurement of sun protection products.

 


UVA/UVB Sunscreen Analysis

Many new in-vitro methods for testing sunscreen protection factors are now being embraced by the industry including COLIPA, Boots Star and the FDA. Many of these new methods involve not only testing the Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of a sunscreen, but also the UVA/UVB ray protection of the product.

Confused about which test methods are needed to qualify your products for regional and global markets? We've been working with the standards-setting committees for nearly two decades, so contact us for expert assistance.
