Personal Care Product Testing
AAL, Inc. Personal Care Testing – AAL tests various personal products. We have procedures for antiperspirants, antidandruff products, body washes, antibacterial gels, antimicrobial wipes, oral care toothpastes, and therapeutic products. We test by FDA approved standards, and by foreign standards when applicable for export. Adamson Analytical specialty testing scientists also possess great expertise in personal care products. Using state of the art instrumentation, AAL analyzes raw materials and finished goods for potency, purity, and trace residual impurities present in products.
Cosmetic Labeling Requirements: Products that are cosmetics but are also intended to treat or prevent disease, or otherwise affect the structure or functions of the human body, are also considered as OTC (over-the-counter) and must comply with both the drug and cosmetic provisions of the law. Examples of products which are drugs as well as cosmetics are anti-cavity toothpastes (e.g., "fluoride" toothpastes), hormone creams, suntan or sunscreen preparations intended to protect against sunburn, antiperspirants that are also deodorants, and antidandruff shampoos.
