manufacturing & safety tests

All products are thoroughly tested for safety, and extensively researched and reviewed against current scientific literature and strict global regulations. Our team of pHD formulators, expert chemists, and cosmetic scientists screen all formulas and ingredients to make sure that our products are good for the hair, safe to use, and in full regulatory compliance. We work with third-party independent experts such as SGS Group to test and certify the quality and purity of our ingredients.

All of our products meet the safety and manufacturing requirements of the Gulf Cooperation Council Standardization Organization (GS), European Union Standards, US Standards, and Canadian Standards. We’re also ISO 9001:2015 certified which means we meet the international quality management system criteria.

Microbiological challenge test

Microbiological challenge test

Products are intentionally exposed to several microorganisms (bacteria, fungus, yeasts, and moulds) to ensure that preservative systems are working efficiently to keep product safe from contamination. All our products must pass microbiological challenge tests before they reach the shelves. Our preservites are non-toxic and safe.

Voluntary testing

Voluntary testing

Our products undergo voluntary testing by groups of people with a wide range of hair types, from wavy to coily. Volunteers are assessed for any adverse reaction under normal use conditions. They’re also assessed for product results and effectiveness. We have a wide range of factors to base our observations on, including scalp condition, hair health, hair tensile strength, curl retention, build-up level, and more. A product is released into the market only if it has 100% positive results from our volunteers.
