We conduct extended durability claims studies for consumer products and personal care, showerhead, waterflow, splash testing, controlled forearm and leg application, as well as SPF 40 min and 80 min water resistance testing.
Custom Temperature and Humidity Control
The ambient environment plays a major role in how products interact with the skin, and how the body responds to external variables.
We maintain 6 individual temperature zones, and have 4 custom dehumidification systems onsite, providing control of both ambient temperature and Relative Humidity (RH%).
3 Custom Clinical Before and After Photography Studios
Our studios have separate temperature and humidity controls and are painted with a special neutral grey paint that allows for consistent reflectivity and absorption.
Our main studio is designed around capturing high resolution, full faced images at a variety of different angles, while our other studios are customizable for testimonials, body shots, hair, hands and feet.
3 Major Hotels Onsite for Study Monitoring
Conveniently located at the Glenpointe are a Marriott, a Homewood Suites, and a Hilton Garden Inn, meaning your visit to our site can be hassle free. VCS maintains corporate rates with all 3 hotels, and we look forward to helping make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
