Stability Testing

Stability and Compatibility testing is performed to ensure the formula will not change when it is filled in your packaging. This process takes 3 months and is performed using a series of six (seven) tests depending on packaging components.

Upon product approval, the customer has the option of running a Package Stability and Compatibility Test. For AMR to guarantee the stability of the product, we require that this test be done with using the exact packaging that will be used to go to market.

These tests will evaluate the product’s integrity and cohesion once introduced to the specific packaging which will be used by the customer. The Research and Development team will re-create the customer’s approved formula, exactly as it is approved, and will run six (seven) tests inside the exact packaging component which the customer chooses for his or her product. One exact bottle of the final packaging is required per test.

1 Month(s): 50°C (120°F)
3 Month(s): 40°C (110° F)
3 Cycle(s): Freeze/Thaw <32°F
3 Month(s): Refrigerator 0°F
3 Month(s): Room Temp. ~78°C
3 Month(s): Room Temp. ~78°C For Weight Loss
3 Month(s): *UV Variable Dependent on packaging

* The amount of tests will be contingent on whether clear packaging will be used for the customer’s final product or not. If the customer chooses clear packaging, a seventh test will be conducted for color fade (UV testing).

The Research and Development team will conduct these tests within the course of the three month period. AMR staff will notify you if any product or packaging instability occurs. If the formula shows signs of instability at any point during testing, our R&D team will work to pinpoint the cause of the issue and correct it and perform the stability testing over.

Should you go to market in packaging that is different from what AMR tested, then stability cannot be guaranteed. AMR labs can only guarantee the products integrity if the correct parameters are followed to ensure a true and successful test. Additional charges may apply if you chose to change packaging after stability testing has already been performed.
