Claims substantiation plays a key role in a product’s success and helps ensure the product stands out against competitors. From moisturization and barrier function, to anti-aging and color changes, rely on RCTS for your product claims substantiation and efficacy testing needs.

With expertise in the four most important elements of clinical trials for claims substantiation — protocol design, study execution, biophysical instrumentation and clinical grading — RCTS is your ideal partner to support your company’s claims for your new or reformulated pharmaceutical, cosmetic or consumer care product. Our dedication to understanding your product inside and out — from the benefit it can offer to what it will take to demonstrate that benefit — will help you go to market with confidence.

Starting with a full review of your objectives, RCTS, in collaboration with your representative, will devise a strategy to acquire the meaningful evidence you need to support advertising and packaging claims. Then we will perform all necessary in-depth dermatological testing to the highest scientific and clinical standards.
