TRI Princeton is a long-standing and well-respected research institute focused on supporting the cosmetics industry with high quality research, claims testing, educational events and consultancy. Based in New Jersey, the institute has 21 global companies as members and provides services to many more.
TRI Princeton’s two key research areas are skin, hair and follicle science. Skin research focuses mainly on the use of spectroscopy (FTIR and Raman) for measuring active delivery, skin moisture and other skin properties. The skin team also work in partnership with clinical test houses to provide in vivo spectroscopy capabilities. Hair research focuses on the development of new measurement capabilities and understanding the effects of cosmetic treatments on hair structure and properties. The hair team also provide contract testing services for claim support and product development studies. Follicle research is performed in close partnership with Monasterium Laboratory GmbH and is focused on bridging the divide between processes in the hair bulb (the living hair) with the quality of the emerging hair shaft (the dead hair).
