New in vitro tests models for cosmetics applied to gynaecology
Summary:
A French company specializing in cosmetics applied to gynaecology has begun an original research program implementing new in vitro test models of skin -Y- mucosa as an alternative to the animal testing. The results will be the development of new topical treatments or molecules for skincare, oral care, medical devices, or pharmaceutical products. The SME is looking for research cooperation agreements with cosmetic or pharmaceutical companies or laboratories.
Description:
Depending on the lifetime, 100% of women are concerned by gynaecological disorders or comfort issues. Vulvar physiology is ill-explored despite a high potential market value, not only for dermo-cosmetic products but also for therapeutic applications. Moreover, most of the time cosmetic products are tested on animals despite of the new international norms forbidding them.

The objective of the project monitored by the French SME whose core business is female welfare is to improve women´s quality of life with cosmetic products and medical devices adapted to their needs. The French company proposes to collaborate on its project of implementing new in vitro tests models in order to:
- develop a better understanding of the fundamental physiological mechanisms of the female body,
- develop of gynaecological and/or topical treatments of new active ingredients, non tested on animals ( Reach, EU rules ...)
- accelerate innovation in in vitro tests, especially as an alternative to animal testing. The SME has thus developed a specific know-how in efficiency and tolerance tests. It works in partnership with the main national R-Y-D institute in France.

The young and innovative company is looking for research cooperation agreements with cosmetic or pharmaceutical companies or laboratories to successfully complete its research program.
Advantages and Innovations:
The scientific R-Y-D efforts and knowledge of the intimate feminine physiology are very limited but 100% of women are concerned by gynaecological disorders or comfort issues.

Meanwhile:

1. The French SME´s approach will provide results that can deepen the fundamental understanding of vulva biology, as well as provide a basis for various applications (new ingredients testing, cosmetics, oral care, gynaecological care, pharmaceutical products) and promote the transfer of knowledge between academic and industrial partners in the cosmetic and biomedical fields.

2. This project, monitored in partnership with a major national R-Y-D institute, has received the support of a world-known French cluster gathering cosmetics companies, laboratories and universities. The academic partner is internationally recognized for its high expertise in the covered fields, with an access to a highly performant R-Y-D platform with advanced equipments and multidisciplinary teams.

3. Its projet of implementing new in vitro test models will be an alternative to the animal testing.
