Blueberry has always invested time and resources in R&D. Starting in the laboratory, passing through biology, to the quality control our experts are constantly searching for technological innovation and more performing raw materials, in order to guarantee the best formulas for texture, efficiency ad safety.

Every year Bluebbery produces more than 200 unique formulas, ranging from dermatological sector to luxury cosmetics, in order to produce tailor made high quality products at a competitive cost.

Two outstanding laboratories. The quality control team and the biologists are constantly working at testing and analysing quality and safety of each formulation.  Blueberry also carries on an significant cooperation with important Universities and Research Labs, in order to provide on demand quality reports, dermatological test and quality control reports. This way Blueberry can guarantee the safety of its products and the essential requirements to get validation.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

Research is the essence of Blueberry. Only through accuracy and method of research we can detect various issues and be able to find solutions to them.  For this reason Blueberry is continously researching broadly: we beging studying, selecting certified suppliers. Next step is medical and scientific research  and also market research according to different distribution channels  and country. 

Our R&D team is repeatedly cooperating with dermatologists and the best suppliers in order to guarantee the best selected materials and certified excellent products. Only this way we can create the requirements for efficient formulas.

However efficiency alone it’s not enough , that is why Blueberry experts keep studying new markets and keep searching for new textures, that could be perfect for any distribution area.

MICROBIOLOGY

Blueberry is equipped with a microbiology lab on its premises, to verify and guarantee microbiological purity of its materials and products.  In details with the Challenge test verifies the efficiency of the preservation  and the evaluation of the microbiological stability of the product.

Once the product is done and tested it will undergo a quickened ageing process. After the stability test Blueberry will proceed with PAO test (Period after opening). The finished product will then undergo an accelerated ageing procedure, in order to test the stability of  chemical-physical parameters such as PH, density, viscosity, humidity and color. Final test is to establish the duration of shelf life.

QUALITY CONTROL

The quality control service ensures, though appropriate verifications during the entire production cycle (chemical-physical test, microbiological and challenge test) (controlli chimico-fisici, microbiologici e challenge test), that the products meets all the qualitative parameters.

All the production lots must undergo chemical, microbiological and physical test.
