What We Do

SGS is committed to delivering safe and effective cosmetic and personal care products to the world and your participation in our studies is vital to improving the products we use every day. The Global beauty brands we partner with are constantly creating new products and improving existing ones and need to test how their products work on your unique skin. Our studies produce real-life results to ensure brands can stand by their products anti-aging, sun protection or skin correcting claims. By participating in our studies you can help lead the way toward better technology in skincare.


Located at I-17 and Peoria Ave, our facility is easily accessible to all the Phoenix area community. We welcome panelists of all ethnicities and backgrounds to help us discover solutions to common skin problems. Many of our studies require visits to our clinic to assess the progress of the treatment, but others for hair care products, color cosmetics, personal devices or dental care products can be performed in the privacy of your own home. Study length can range from a few hours to several weeks depending on the requirements. Compensation ranges up to $60-$750 upon completion.
