Why be a volunteer ?

Does the cosmetics world interest you? Would you like to be the first to test cosmetic innovations (face creams, haircare products, make-up, etc.) to satisfy your scientific curiosity? BIO-EC Laboratory carries out clinical trials enabling the various cosmetics brands to validate the tolerance and efficacy of their products under actual usage conditions. All our evaluations are carried out under the supervision of a dermatologist.


Safety of the products :

Each of the formulas and ingredients tested have already undergone tolerance tests which ensure their innocuousness. Since 2006 over 800 volunteers have regularly participated in our tests with no recorded serious risk.
