Neue ISO/TR 18811:2018

"ISO/TR 18811:2018 gives guidelines for the stability testing of cosmetic products. It reviews readily available bibliographic references that provide a resource for the assessment of the stability of cosmetic products. This review of the available guidelines that assess the stability of cosmetic products can serve as a technical/scientific framework to identify the most suitable methods for the assessment of the stability of cosmetic products."
