Acti-Chem is committed to the principles of Replacement, Reduction and Refinement. We became the first preservative producer to establish our own GLP compliant in vitro toxicological testing facility.

Non animal testing

Our IVT supports the safety assessment of personal care, household and other industrial products without the use of animals.

Safety Assessments

IVT uses various test systems including cell culture and tissue models such as VitroDerm, a Reconstructed Human Epidermis (RHE) model grown in-house which resembles the top four layers of human skin.

Our in vitro testing laboratories provide the toxicological assessment of eye irritation, skin irritation, skin corrosion, phototoxicity and cytotoxicity of cosmetic ingredients and finished product formulations.
