Cosmetomics@normormandy' platform federates and coordinates a set of knowledge and advanced equipments scattered in the university and private laboratories COBRA, CORIA, LMSM, PBSE, URCOM, CERTAM, Surface analysis... aound a dedicated center to the extent of the safety and the safety itself of cosmetic products. Cosmetomics@normandy combines fondamental and applied research as well as their industrial transfer : realization of experimental systems, transfer and diffusion of knowledge, scientific expertise favoring R&D development and innovation of companies. 

This platform aims to accelerate innovation for cosmetic industry members by providing technologies, specitif innovative methodologies likes : characterization techniques, detection, diagnosis, imaging and analysis, in silico, in vitro, ex vivo, multi-scale and multimodal characterization to cosmetics.

  • Optical and laser metrology, advanced digital flow simulation for cosmetics or cosmetic industry processes. 
  • Characterization and impact of particles: electron microscopy, high resolution imaging, SIMS imgaing, isotopic labeling.
  • Physico-chemistry of media and complex mictures, formulation
  • Innovative decontamination technologies : UVc, pulsed light, photocatalysis. 
  • Product microbiota-skin interactions, safety of the assets,  interactomic, proteomic, metagenomic.
