We deliver cutting edge research solutions for cosmeceutical testing and scientific claim substantiation.

The cosmetic industry is rapidly growing and customer expectations on their cosmetic products are increasing. We think that the cosmeceutical testing field needs to adapt to these changes in consumer requests. Therefore we constantly monitor the newest developments in the field and the needs of the global cosmetic industry. This helps us to optimize our services for customized, state-of-the-art cosmeceutical testing and scientific claim substantiation.

We offer state-of-the-art pre-clinical services for investigative skin and hair biology in vitro and ex vivo as well as clinical testing in human skin and hair in vivo.

Our testing possibilities range from basic science to translational applied research of high relevance for cosmeceutical application. We established cutting edge methodologies and techniques to efficiently identify, characterize and validate novel targets and formulations for personal care and cosmetic products. The use of our experimental models enables us to generate data for most scientific claim substantiation needs in dermatology and trichology.

Additionally, we offer clinical trials in our hair clinical trial unit or via strategic partners for healthy skin and hair benefits to follow up interesting targets identified during the pre-clinical research phase.

Another main advantage in engaing with us is our accces to healthy and diseased hair and skin samples which we regularly obtain from our great network of dermatologists and plastic surgeons. All collected samples are stored within the “Monasterium Laboratory Biobank”.

From study design through to presentation of results, we provide a high quality service to meet the cosmeceutical testing and scientific claim substantiation needs of our clients. Our team of experts is happy to provide consulting services to suggest the right experimental models and to help customizing our clients’ study projects. Naturally, regular communication, updates on the progress, and advice at every stage of the testing process are also included in our services.
