  • In-vitro determination of HEV Blocking Potential
  • Fabric UPF in-vitro testing
In-vivo Suncare Studies:
  • Protection against sun exposure, UVB & UVA Protection
  • Static Sun Protection Factor as water/very-water-resistance according to ISO 24444:2010, FDA 2011, AS/NZS 2604:2012.
  • UVA Protection Factor according to ISO 24444:2011, JCIA 1999.
  • HEV/Blue Light Protection
The spectrum of blue light, especially around 415nm, could lead to erythema, free radical production and long-lasting hyperpigmentation. We offer different approaches to evaluate the anti-blue light protective effect:
  • Blue Light exposition with specific simulator (single or repeated) followed by evaluation of B-carotene oxidation, protein carbonylation, lipid oxidation or pigmentation.
  • Test in real conditions, on subjects regularly exposed to the screens of electronic devices: effect on the radiance of the complexion and the cutaneous fatigue.
Specific Protocols:
Extra-water-resistance, resistance to sand, to friction of the towel, to salt water or chlorinated water and to perspiration on skin and/or hair. Remanence of the sunscreen product as their efficacy after application on wet-skin.If you are interested in in-vitro and/or in-vivo SPF Testing, please visit our website for more information or contact us today for a quote.
