Safety Evaluations

Ensuring that cosmetics and personal care products are safe for consumers to use and
free of potentially harmful substances for the environment is a vital step in bringing a
new product to market. Mérieux NutriSciences offers a full range of scientific tests to
support your safety evaluations.

We employ both in vitro toxicity tests and in vivo clinical tests to gather essential data as
part of an Integrated Testing Strategy (ITS) approach for safety evaluation. This allows
us to get closer to the overall goal of predictive in vitro-based risk evaluation processes
to replace or reduce the use of animal tests.


We also provide a range of GLP-compliant analyses to determine ecotoxicity and
environmental fate according to international regulations.
