Prior to engaging in any efficacy study, AMA requires that some basic safety testing is completed with no adverse findings on potential products as panelist safety is of utmost concern. A bare minimum of a Repeat Insult Patch Test (RIPT) and Preservative Efficacy Test (PET) should be conducted.
AMA can conduct irritation and sensitization testing and can refer you to microbiological testing facilities if requested. Please note that AMA has no reciprocal arrangements for referrals as we find this to be unethical.
