Cosmetics

The production of cosmetics is a decisive factor when it comes to health and the well-being of people and therefore also to their hygiene. Humans use cosmetics every day as a cleansing, caring or prettifying product. The need for safety regulations has increased. Amongst others, this is shown by the EU cosmetic regulation as well as the GMP requirements for cosmetics. We support your preparation of Product Information Files (PIF) and are experts in cosmetic production hygiene and microbiological laboratory services. Additionally, we offer specialized training for the cosmetic industry. Our industry experience enables us to understand your needs. We are always at your service.
