Pevious events

Skinobs held previous editions of Cosmetotest in 2022 and 2023, to shed light on the latest key topics and trends in the testing field. Cosmetotest is also a great occasion to meet with friends and colleagues from all over the world. 



"Cosmetotest is an opportunity to discover innovations developed by laboratories that are experts in biological models and clinical evaluation, a veritable panorama of the best-in-class in terms of evaluating the biological activity of biomolecules and natural substances. It is also a time to meet and share with these experts, thus strengthening existing partnerships or building new ones around innovative projects. Conferences and discussions feed the creativity of R&D and marketing teams, pushing towards ever more cutting-edge and inspirational “active ingredient” innovations, serving cosmetic brands worldwide."

Sébastien HAMEURY
Marketing manager - GREENTECH

"​Cosmetotest is a subtle mix of science and technology that brings scientists closer together and industrialists driven to develop the cosmetics of tomorrow. All have the same sensitivity. The « focus » format is totally adapted and shows singularity. The talks are ponctuated by convivial moments."

Fabrice MONTI
CEO & Principal Co-founder - Microfactory

"This first Cosmetotest event was a great opportunity for face-to-face communication between testing laboratories (CRO) and manufacturers. Also, presentations from CRO were interesting and helped to further our overall understanding of the strong points of each CRO. Additionally, we were able to talk directly with exhibitors and discuss topics in greater depth."

Branch Manager , Senior Researcher - KOSÉ R&D FRANCE

"​I was delighted to participate in this first Cosmetotest, an event born of a brilliant idea of Anne Charpentier (SkinObs). It was an opportunity to discover or rediscover various players involved in preclinical and clinical research, to meet them and to compare and contrast their approach to the various topics. I particularly liked the format chosen for the presentations, spotlighting certain innovative technologies or underlining certain key skills of the providers through their participation in an innovative project on current issues."
