Sensory testing for body care and healthcare products
Scent is an important factor in the development of creams, lotions, shower gels and other body care products, which are increasingly called upon to mask body odour. Consumers want to know how the fragrances of different products compare, how they perform, and how long they will last.
How can we help?
Odournet offers individually designed tests that are developed to meet your specific needs. Our range of sensory testing services includes:
- sensory evaluation by an expert panel
- performance testing/efficacy testing of products (such as toothpaste, foot deodorant, etc) by an expert or consumer panel
- longevity testing using SMS voting (e.g. texting consumers to ask whether their deodorant is still effective).
We also offer molecular analysis and comparison of products using gas chromatography with ion-mobility spectrometry (GC-IMS), gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) or gas chromatography sniffing (GC-Sniffing) – for example, to determine odour-relevant components or to analyse the release of aromas when applied to human skin.

Our scientific and independent studies are extremely valuable for the development of healthcare and body care products, but that’s not all. They’re also a great selling point that will build consumer confidence and boost your marketing efforts.
