    Over the past year we have been working on an exciting project regarding vegan alternative challenge testing. We hope that this work is able to highlight the differences between traditional test methods and vegan-friendly alternatives.

Previous Events

Swansea University

Careers Event

Georgia attended Science Careers day for Bioscience students held at Swansea University on Wednesday 8th March 2023. The event was successful with many students interested in the cosmetic industry, particularly the microbiology side of the industry.

Georgia was able to give a presentation with information about the company as well as her time at Swansea University as a student on how she got to the role she is in now. We had great fun attending and thank everyone who came to speak to us!

Local Schools

British Science Week

As part of our outreach programme for British Science week, Marina, Georgia, and Codie ran four cosmetic formulation workshops at Clytha Primary School and donates £500 towards science equipment for the school. The students thoroughly enjoyed the workshops and made fantastic cosmetic formulations. Diolch yn fawr Clytha Primary!

ISCA Cosmetic Testing

Lab Event Day

In response to interest we received about cosmetic formulatory work and lab experience, we decided to hold a free event to give students the opportunity to sample life within our Research and Development lab. During our open day, the students formulated various cosmetic products, and then conducted their own microbial tests in our Micro lab.

Marina and Georgia were able to share their knowledge and experience of the industry with the students, and as the event was very successful and enjoyed by all, we hope to hold more in the future!

Barcelona 2023


Georgia attended Cosmetorium in October 2023, working alongside out distributors and got the opportunity to meet many new faces in the cosmetic industry.

This exhibition event allowed us to introduce ourselves as a testing company and to showcase that our testing services are available globally to all cosmetic and personal care companies.

Coventry 2023

SCS Formulate

Leannah, Georgia and Marina attended SCS Formulate November 2023 in Coventry. The team thoroughly enjoyed their first exhibition show and had a lot of interest in our cosmetic testing. They were able to connect with other companies in the same industry to build professional relationships.

Our very own handmade novelty petri dish coasters were the starts of the show!

Please come and visit us next year at SCS Formuate 2024!
