What to Know About Accelerated Aging TestingAging is a natural phenomenon, but its effects on appearance are often not welcomed. Society’s focus on maintaining a youthful appearance has led to the creation of copious amounts of anti-aging products, all of which make claims that must be substantiated by independent lab testing. 

Anti-aging testing refers to the ability of a product to reduce the visible appearance of the signs of aging. These may include fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, discoloration, sagging and uneven skin tone.

The following will delve into the significance of anti-aging testing and its relevance to anti-aging claims. It will explore the principles behind these testing methods and their practical applications. Aging is a natural biological process influenced by a combination of intrinsic and extrinsic factors.
