If you are not sure how to substantiate your product claim, ask Stephens & Associates. We have 30 years of experience with proven testing methods and state-of-the-art equipment that may match your requirements.  Additionally, we develop new methods, such as our validated computer program to quantify wrinkles by analyzing photos of subjects’ faces.

In addition to the usual skin care product claims for improving wrinkle appearance, acne severity, or moisturization, we do studies to substantiate product claims for:

  • Heat and humidity effects on facial foundation coverage
  • Facial foundation coverage determination
  • Smoothing effects of a foundation primer
  • Reduction in perceived age
  • Makeup removal
  • Mood improvement from product usage
  • Pore clearing
  • Lip plumping
  • Hair growth or regrowth – volume, length, and thickness
  • Relief of foot fatigue, pain and discomfort
  • Improved sleep patterns for babies and parents
  • Accuracy and user-friendliness of product-customization kiosks
  • Sensory response of topical products
  • Tanning reversal
  • Wound healing effects

Stephens & Associates is quality-focused and dedicated to providing protocols, bioinstrumentation, clinical methods, and regulatory information to ensure your project is handled professionally and properly.
