    Published on April 2, 2022

    Auriga Research Private Limited, the largest NABL accredited testing lab in India, has now expanded its scope of services, offering clinical and dermatological evaluation of products, catering to the blooming cosmetics and personal care industry in India, and the world at large. Having already been working with leading companies in the industry for over 3 decades, Auriga has been providing chemical and microbiological testing services to ensure safety, performance, and compliance with national and international regulatory requirements. The new offering further solidifies its capabilities in clinical evaluation to meet the growing demand for clinical safety and claims studies for cosmetics and personal-care products.

    The cosmetic clinical trials are focused on dermal safety studies of skincare products during and after development, including normal in-use safety studies, allergen potential, and exaggerated-use conditions. Auriga also supports product development through dermatological efficacy testing and claims substantiation, relating to fairness, anti-aging, moisturisation, oiliness, acne, instant fairness, skin lightening, and skin deodorant.

    Dr Saurabh Arora, Managing Director, Auriga Research Private Limited, said, “The highly competitive market for cosmetics and personal care products has today made it imperative to conduct comprehensive dermatological testing and have scientific data to back-up any claims made. With more and more new companies and products entering the market every day, consumers today want products that are effective and clinically proven to solve their problems.

    Regulations around the same have also gotten a lot more stringent, and so, our cosmetic clinical trials play a key role of product differentiator for our customers, enabling them to launch their products in the market confidently, and promote their many proven benefits. Our vision is to emerge as one of the most efficient and competitive Clinical Research Organisations globally, providing high-quality independent clinical and analytical services, maximising customer satisfaction through our impeccable business ethics.”

    Auriga has already been working with external suppliers to provide end-to-end services in the product development and evaluation field for the cosmetic industry. But now, with these added capabilities, it has closed the gap in its offerings, making it a one-point contact for all manufacturers looking to develop scientifically proven cosmetic and personal care products. Auriga also offers Import & Registration services and analytical testing of cosmetic products. Currently, there are a total of 6 analytical labs in India, in Delhi, Manesar – Gurgaon, Baddi- Himachal Pradesh, and Bangalore, performing these tests.
