Ensure your packaging is safe and effective at protecting your products. Our comprehensive cosmetics, detergents and hygiene product packaging testing solutions ensure safety and functionality and avoid loss and damage during transportation, handling and storage.

Safeguarding products during handling and storage can be difficult. Packaging materials need to be attractive, functional and sufficiently robust to avoid damage and deterioration.

Better packaging for your cosmetics and personal hygiene products

    • Extractables and leachables
