Evaluation of substances and products
To assess each formulation we use the ingredient database of Cosmetic Analysis, based on the INCI list of the EU. It’s a dynamic resource, which is constantly being expanded by their research team to include new substances. The Cosmetic Analysis database currently contains 9,686 evaluated cosmetic ingredients.
The team researches the ingredients in over 100 specialist publications for further properties. Findings are quoted with indication of the source with the respective ingredients. Currently, 12,050 citations can be found. The resulting properties are added and evaluated separately to the functions described by the EU. Currently Cosmetic Analysis shows 34,501 evaluated substance properties.
The evaluated properties of a substance result in an overall evaluation of the cosmetic substance by complex calculations. This verified approach allows for a check and balance on our product innovation to ensure we only use the safest and most proven ingredients.
