All cosmetic products come in direct contact with the applicators’ skin. Therefore, they can do a lot of harm to people if any damaging substance is included in them. This is why cosmetic testing labs in India are required to conduct proper tests on these products and ensure they are safe when used as per the guidelines. Along with safety, the products’ quality is also examined during these lab testings for cosmetic products.
These cosmetic product testing can be conducted in-house. But with the requirement for specialised facilities and technical expertise it can become difficult and prohibitively expensive to do in house. That is why you should get all the skincare products tested from reliable and approved cosmetic production testing laboratories.

Generally, the type of cosmetic checks depends on the product that has to be examined. A few common cosmetic tests include:
1. Microbiological test for analyzing any growth of microorganisms
2. Stability and toxicology testing to see whether or not the product will maintain its qualities during the entire shelf life. Plus, the product doesn’t contain any toxic substances that can harm the human skin or eye. 
3. Performance testing to check the performance, functionality, durability, and usability of the product.

The sample quantity of cosmetic products should be enough to undergo all the necessary cosmetic testing procedures. Moreover, this should include the amount needed for repetition and retention. So the exact quantity gets determined based on the overall tests that have to be conducted on the product.
