Every day Gattefossé applies its full range of experience with dosage form design to offer customers original formulas—with textures matching current trends—for all applications: face, body, and hair care; makeup; ecofriendly products, sunscreens, and more.
Gattefossé knows skin care and beauty products stimulate all the senses, so we attach great importance to the sensorial evaluation of our products and formulas. We have been developing our expertise in sensorial analysis since 1996.
As a leader in the field, we have established a panel of experts specialized in the characterization of textures—cosmetic products and topical pharmaceutical formulations in particular. They can accurately assess the physical and sensorial properties of any product and translate these impressions into objective data, regardless of whether they are evaluating our own formulas or other products on the market.
Our sensory database has been constantly enriched over the course of twenty years and spans over 400 formulations to help us best respond to customer requests.
