Take your testing into the 21st century with MatTek’s cruelty free cosmetic testing applications.
The beauty industry is constantly evolving with new and innovative products emerging every day. Consumers are becoming increasingly conscious of the methods used to test their makeup and skincare products. Formulation chemists must ensure the products they create are both safe and effective, while adhering to consumer demands for ethical testing. MatTek’s skin and eye tissues allow researchers to test the safety and efficacy of their products without resorting to animal testing. The ethically produced tissues also provide a more accurate representation of human skin and eyes than laboratory animals.
MatTek has developed a diverse selection of cosmetic testing applications. Compatible with its range of lab-grown tissue models, applications for evaluating cosmetics include Skin Hydration, Skin Brightening, Skin Irritation, Eye Irritation, and Anti-Aging. The original lab-grown human epidermis, EpiDerm, evaluates skin irritation potential. EpiDermFT, a full-thickness skin, contains both dermis and epidermis and evaluates the effects of skincare products on skin hydration and aging.
EpiOcular, a human cornea-like tissue, is designed to assess the safety of products that may come into contact with eyes. MelanoDerm is produced with pigmented tissues of Caucasian, Black, and Asian donor ethnicities, allowing researchers to study the impact of their products on diverse skin types. The tissues are also cost-effective and simple to use. They often provide faster results than animal testing, enabling formulation chemists to bring their products to market more quickly. The technology is also sustainable, with a footprint a fraction of the size of animal testing laboratories.
MatTek’s tissue technology is a game-changer for formulation chemists in the beauty industry. The tissues offer a more ethical and accurate alternative to animal testing while providing researchers with valuable insights into the safety and efficacy of their products.
