New institute will research cosmetics products

    A cosmetics research institute will be introduced into Shanghai Oriental Beauty Valley industry park in Fengxian to drive development.

    The 1,650-square-meter institute will be completed by the end of this year and become the third functional complex in the park after an exhibition hall and a service center.

    It is reputed to be the only research body in China designed to undertake cosmetics talent cultivation, technology research, third party assessment, standard design and information services. Shanghai Institute of Technology will be in charge of operating the institute.

    Once completed, it will set up a public information platform to assess relevant standards and industry information. It will also introduce a technology service platform to test ingredients used in cosmetic products as well as their safety, efficiency and new formulas.

    A Shanghai Institute of Technology director expected the new institute to extend the industry value chain and develop targeted products for consumers.
