For more than 20 years, CRG has provided quality data to the world’s leading manufacturers of personal and beauty care products. This is our sole focus. To keep our competitive edge, we do not conduct pharmaceutical studies.
We deliver superior study execution and data collection for product development, efficacy, and claims testing, as well as safety-in-use testing. We have extensive experience in conducting clinical trials for shampoos and conditioners (including dandruff, scalp/hair treatments), skin moisturizers and cleaners, anti-aging treatments, antiperspirants and deodorants, men’s and women’s grooming/shaving, and more. Our capabilities include the ability to acquire skin biopsies and physical samples using various methods.
We will meet or exceed requirements for timely delivery of verifiable data.
