The importance of stability testing
Wild Child can help
Stability testing in the cosmeceutical and pharmaceutical industries is essential, but it is also time-consuming. This is because the process involves your product to be stored and repeatedly tested for years to determine its reaction to time and external stimuli such as natural and artificial light exposure. It also looks into environmental reactions such as humidity and temperature.
These reactions relate to any changes in the physical makeup or form of the product, as well as any variations in its chemical composition. In addition, an important part of stability testing is establishing and validating published expiry dates. The only way to do this is to repeatedly test the product for degradation during its proposed shelf life, which could take months and even years.
The results of stability testing will also allow you to determine how effective your product is once exposed to these stimuli, as well as the quality and integrity of the product.
Even though some forms of stability testing continues for years, Wild Child also offers accelerated studies which serve as predictor models for concurrent trials. This is an ideal option for products that have a marketing deadline, or where the packaging of the product is a concern. In fact, our helpful Permeation Predictor model can actually save hundreds of hours of real-time studies, hours that could be put to better use in your business.
Establishing a stability profile is an important part of any product’s development life cycle. Here at Wild Child, we have a wealth of experience in stability protocol development and execution. Because of this, we are able to provide stability testing for medicines, cosmetics and therapeutic devices, all at very competitive rates.
