Sun protection factor determinations

proDERM has dedicated a specialized department to the testing of sunscreen products. In a 350 m² facility, internationally accepted guidelines are appropriately applied to both in-vivo and in-vitro methods for the evaluation of sun protection.

Because these products play a hugely important protective function, contractors and contract research organizations are obligated to take special care in determining the sun protection factor of a product. For this reason, under the direction of Colipa founder Stephan Bielfeldt, we have the accuracy of our methods tested at regular intervals in international interlaboratory comparisons and have the proper functioning of our facilities calibrated by external service providers.

In addition to traditional sunscreen products, proDERM Cosmetics also investigates products in which the protective function represents an added value, such as nourishing or decorative cosmetics with UV protection.
