Innovation, research and development in cosmetic and chemical industry

Cosmetic industry has one of the most dynamic develop in Poland. Research and development activities include, among other creations of new recipes, production of vegan cosmetics and cosmetics addressed to people with special dermatological needs. On the other hand, activities in the chemical industry are often complex and multi-stage processes, during which is necessary to remember about legal requirements and comply with standards of sustainable production. Also, when applying for certification, it is demanded to comply with stringent standards and implement the required modifications. Time and employees costs in chemical or cosmetic industry may be high, which may allow for generating significant savings as part of settling the research and development tax relief.

Examples of research and development activities:

● opracowywanie nowych receptur produktów kosmetycznych, w celu redukcji PEG, silikonów i sztucznych składników,
● developing new formulas of cosmetic products to reduce PEG, silicones and artificial ingredients,
● developing new products addressed to people with special dermatological needs,
● creating a completely new product, developing various forms of final products: verification of new raw materials, improvement of production technology,
● developing recipes for new or improved products, conducting their tests and producing trial series,
● conducting analytical and stability studies, development and validation of analytical methods,
