Liquid Soap Testing in UK

Enquiry:

I am from the UK. I have already sent samples off to two labs but they can not accredit the results, so I am hoping that you might be able to help.

In short, I make liquid soap using a ‘Water Kefir’ base. I am trying to get either the soap or water kefir tested for LAB, any probiotics, or anything, such as vitamins or minerals, within the content that can enhance certification and trust.

My water kefir is classed as a water, juice or fermented drink so after reading a few pages on your website I feel that you might be able to help with this. I am not sure if you can help with testing the liquid soap though. Please advise on this.

Going by the above can you please let me know if you can help, and if so any test prices and details.


One of our ISO certified and accredited laboratory in UK would be performing liquid soap analysis.

Simultaneously its purpose is to provide a certified statement of the quantity and quality of the oil delivered and to draw attention to matters which may be relevant to the protection of the client’s interest.

Bunkering operation lets the bunker owner/captain/producers know the quality, quantity and safety measures applied into the oil cargo and vessel itself.
