Stability Testing for Cosmetic & Skincare Products

Helping Cosmetic and Skincare manufacturers determine the stability and shelf-life of their products.

Stability testing, on cosmetic and skincare products, provides important insight into a product’s shelf life and helps manufacturers ensure high-quality and safe products for consumers.

Understanding a product’s stability can be achieved through monitoring changes in integrity and quality of a product over time. Stability is affected by major factors such as storage variability, ingredient quality, processing aids, and packaging.

At AEMTEK, we work closely with your small or large scale businesses to design and perform stability testing customized to your unique needs and formulation. Our laboratory performs testing on all types of cosmetics and skincare agents from natural and organic to CBD infused.

Stability Testing Abilities

Our technical team of microbiology experts provides the following services related to testing the stability and determining the shelf life of your Cosmetic and Skincare products:

Customizable Storage Conditions

Our laboratory offers a large selection of storage conditions, varying in temperature and humidity levels, to simulate the conditions your product will be subject to during its life-cycle.

Sensory Evaluation

Examining the changes in sensory quality plays an important role in evaluating the stability and shelf life of cosmetic and skincare products.

We monitor the changes in odor, appearance, texture, and color and correlate that data with the chemical and microbiological results to verify the stability of the product in the target period.

What is a Stability Study?

In order to keep their brand and consumers safe, manufacturers need to accurately determine the use by or best before dates for their products.

Stability is a product of physical, microbiological and chemical processes, triggered by any one of a multitude of contributing factors. Product characteristics, including the quality and consistency of ingredients, the moisture content and acidity levels, all play a part, as do external factors like storage, transport and packaging materials.

Given the complexity of factors contributing to stability, our experts can offer a bespoke service which is tailor-made to the composition of your products, storage, and packaging.

Our laboratories use the latest cutting-edge shelf life testing methods and technology and are accredited to the international standard for quality management (ISO 17025). Therefore, you can be sure of a high quality, cost-effective service which delivers accurate stability and shelf life test results.
