Since July 2013, you must establish an information file of your products including a toxicology report and the validation of safety margin calculations of every ingredient for each of your cosmetic products.
The ANSM (National Agency for Drugs and health products Safety) and Fraud Control can ask you to show this file in the event of an audit.
We build the regulatory cosmetic file and help you obtain ecological and organic cosmetic certifications (Ecocert, Qualité France, Cosmos et Nature).
We are at your disposal to help you establish or update these documents.

We strictly control our production at every stage of the manufacturing in order to be in accordance with our clients’ requirement specifications.
We improve our processes all the time.
Probionat works all the time to go beyond ANSM recommendations and therefore targets several goals

  • A production compliant to BPF
  • An improvement of the traceability and consequently of the quality of the products

At Probionat, two people are specifically dedicated to these quality control processes outside the Laboratory
• At the arrival of the raw materials before their placing in storage, a
 visual and olfactory check as well as a control of the textures is made.
It is only after this phase that the products are actually placed into stock.

• On the packaging chain of the end products, in order to check the conformity of the production before the delivery.

At Probionat the laboratory, essential in the processes of Research and Development, creation and manufacturing, employs 5 people that is to say a sixth of the workforce.

 Its role is varied :

It creates your products and test them.
It takes part in the process of manufacturing to check the quality of the production.
It works in R&D to imagine new dosage forms.
