How to conduct a clinical study of cosmetics in Portugal


The design of a clinical study of cosmetics should be adapted to the characteristics of the cosmetic product and to the claims that the sponsor intends to prove. The interventional studies must be previously reported to INFARMED, I.P., according to article 34 of Law no. 21/2014, of april 16.

If the sponsor does not have the appropriate conditions for conducting a clinical study with intervention of cosmetics, it may subcontract one of the institutions or companies that provide that service.
