Servizi Complementari

A COMPLETE CONSULTATION: FROM RESEARCH TO LOGISTICS.

Complementary services for a complete support and the guarantee of safe and quality products.

LAB TEST

Intercon's internal laboratory is able to carry out all the necessary tests, before placing the product on the market. A team of specialised chemists and biologists performs formula stability tests and compatibility tests with the target packaging. To ensure the impartiality and reliability of the analysis and the results, all samples are subjected to a second check in an external lab. Only after this additional check, the samples continue in the various phases of development and production.
