Cosmetics Inspections in China

We Visit Your Factory to Inspect Your Cosmetics and Verify Certifications

Cosmetics can be a complicated product. They need to be tested for safety, and clients will often insist on a high level of certification consistent with regulations set by the US Food and Drug Administration and other government agencies. AQF provides state-of-the-art lab testing and product inspection services to ensure our client’s cosmetics are safe and effective for consumer use.

Recommended for Every Shipment

  • Detailed labeling review can be integrated into any Cosmetics Inspection: AQF personnel verify on-site that the cosmetics inspectionfactory is holding all appropriate certifications and documents (in regard to FDA CFR Title 21-USA and EU Directive 76/768/EEC)
  • During each Cosmetics Inspection in China, QC inspectors review the production line for hygiene and possible contamination during every inspection and will verify any product claims made by the factory (non-animal testing, ingredient claims, etc.)
  • Samples are drawn from the inspection and sent on for Cosmetics Lab Testing which includes microbial analysis, efficacy of preservation, ingredient determination, undesirable effect testing, and color additive analysis

Cosmetics, along with any other product that makes skin-contact with consumers, are subject to extremely stringent quality and safety standards.

Allowing products to ship without first performing a specialized Cosmetics Inspection to detect observable quality issues, as well as pull samples for lab testing can be disastrous for importers and retailers alike.

How AQF Inspects Cosmetics

During your cosmetics inspections in China, AQF auditors will verify that your factory has current documentation for the materials used both in the cosmetics itself as well as its immediate packaging. Your products will be checked for all applicable dimensions, weights, labeling, and colorings, as AQF auditors will cross reference these values with any client-provided specifications.cosmetics inspection

If you manage a brand, retail operation, or have clients that are relying on you to provide a quality product in every shipment then do not settle for inspection companies who use untrained and underpaid local inspectors.

AQF QA teams are trained and our inspectors often have an engineering background. We’ll make sure you have the right team for the job and that your products are getting evaluated carefully and with high regard for product quality. Contact AQF today and schedule your next Cosmetics Inspection.
