Resumen:
Un organismo de investigación francés especializado en toxicología ambiental y ecotoxicología ofrece servicios de pruebas y análisis de formulaciones cosméticas para desarrollar cosméticos ecorresponsables. Antes de la formulación, la empresa clasifica los productos en función de la toxicidad de los ingredientes. Esto permite adoptar un enfoque ecorresponsable consciente y elegir los ingredientes adecuados para el producto cosmético. Después de la formulación, los cosméticos son probados para medir los impactos de (eco)toxicidad. El proceso puede aplicarse en los diferentes ingredientes que componen el producto o en el producto final. El organismo busca empresas que desarrollen cosméticos ecológicos y orgánicos con el fin de establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica o servicio.

Tittle:
A contract research organisation (CRO) offers expertise in ecotoxicology and environmental toxicology and chemistry for the cosmetic industry
Summary:
A French research organization, specialized in environmental toxicology and ecotoxicology, offers testing and analyzing cosmetic products formulation with the scope to develop eco-responsible cosmetic products.
The organization is interested in working with companies developing new green and organic cosmetic products, in the frame of a technical cooperation agreement or services agreement
Description:
A French research company, specialized in environmental toxicology and ecotoxicology, has developed an expertise in testing and analyzing cosmetic products formulation.

Currently, there is no clear regulation forcing cosmetic manufacturers to undertake ecotoxicological tests in order to obtain data on the environmental impact of their product. Yet, some cosmetic brands are pioneers and already foster an environmental approach.

Therefore the organization offers two processes: formerly and subsequently to the cosmetic product formulation :
- Before the formulation, the company realizes a classification of products depending on the toxicity of the ingredients. It allows adopting a conscious Eco-Responsible approach choosing the right ingredients for the cosmetic product.
- After the formulation, the technology consists in testing cosmetic products measuring the (eco)toxicity impacts. The process can be applied to the different ingredients composing the product or on the final product.

Thus, products sold with "ORGANIC" and/or "GREEN" label using the additional manufacturing Eco-Responsible approach offer an added-value to the consumers.

The process includes:
- Ingredients classification depending on their toxicity previous to product formulation.
- Toxicity and biodegradability tests on final product, adapted to freshwater or sea water.
- Tests creation targeting a specific environment (beach, corals...).
- Pack "Microbeads biodegradability". Indeed Plastic microbeads are going to be ban because of their impact on the environment and even more on the trophic chain. It offers to support companies in their "Eco-Responsible" approach previous to the formulation of new products. Based on OECD guidelines or adapted to customer needs, it helps to test biodegradability of alternative solution.

The organization is interested in a technical cooperation agreement or services agreement to assist chemical, pharmaceutics and cosmetics companies developing new environmental-friendly, organic and eco-responsible cosmetic products.
Advantages and Innovations:
- Technological processes offering a pioneer approach
- Installation unique in Europe - 6 700 m2 of laboratory.
- Last generation equipment LC-MS/MS, LC-HRMS, GC-MS/MS, Maldi-TOF/TOF, NMR (liquid or gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometer)
- Regulatory tests (REACH) and tailor made protocol.
