Chemical analysis on product

To ensure the safety of finished cosmetic products, products undergo chemical analysis. Despite safety measures taken by manufacturers, impurities may still occur in cosmetics.
Using chemical analysis, occurence and levels of impurities are measured in the finished product. An example of such a test is Mass Spectrometry. We check whether levels of impurities comply with regulatory standards, and assess the safety by using the information in our database. Aside from assessing all impurities, we take special care when we find impurities which contain heavy metals, or are carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic to reproduction (CMR substances).
