Advanced Laboratories Inc® offers PET for cosmetics and personal care products using USP <51> and PCPC (formerly CTFA) M-3, M-4, and M-6. Our labs perform method suitability testing before all PET to ensure that the requested methods are right for your product, avoiding needless retesting while saving you time and money and getting your product to market as soon as possible.

Adding preservatives to personal care products helps control the microbial content, directly impacting product quality, and is necessary to ensure consumer safety, product integrity, and stability. Preservative efficacy testing (PET) confirms that your preservatives are maintaining their ability to inhibit microorganisms introduced to the product during regular or reasonably anticipated use by the consumer and is required by British Pharmacopoeia (BP), European Pharmacopoeia (Ph. Eur.), and the United States Pharmacopoeia (USP).

*Accredited to ISO standard 17025:2017 and listed in
