Consumer Product Testing

Custom Tailored Clinical Support and Claim Substantiation

At VCS we pair four main core types of clinical services together to help you ensure your product is safe and effective.

Expert Grading

Expert Grading involves using numerical scales to assess the relative change in parameters after treatment by trained assessors.

Multiple readings may be taken, and a variety of scales can be implemented to look at different symptoms and underlying conditions.

Sample Grading Claims

  • Reduces Dandruff by XX% on average
  • Improves Skin Tone Clarity by XX%
  • Reduces Redness by an average of XX%
  • Reduces the appearance of age spots by up to XX%
  • Reduces the appearance of undereye bags/puffiness by up to XX%

Instrumental Assessments

Biophysical instrumental evaluations are widely used when it comes to demonstrating what your product is capable of at the in-vivo level.

Percentage based improvements can be calculated to support a wide range of personal care claims, and they are generally considered to be some of the most robust and staunch clinical support that can be provided.

Sample Instrumental Claims

  • Improves hydration by up to XX% in as little as one use
  • Improves the barrier function of the skin
  • Improves skin firmness by up to XX%
  • Improves elasticity by up to XX%
  • Reduces Redness by up to XX%

User Trials

User trials generally involve qualitative or subjective questionnaires, and are designed to pull sensory feedback data from product users.

These studies are critically important when it comes to supporting claims that cannot be measured directly, such as use experience, product recommendation, sensory feedback, and tactile performance.

Sample Consumer Claims

  • X% of subjects reported that their skin appeared younger
  • Silky smooth feel
  • Makes the skin feel notably softer in as little as 3 uses
  • Leaves the skin feeling hydrated in as little as one use
  • Leaves skin feeling moisturized and healthy
