Cosmetic companies support and conduct stability study programs because it is good business. Any improvement in stablity of a product is important for product performance, consumer satisfaction and economics. A well-designed, comprehensive stabilty program should aid in the selection of proposed cosmetic products and their packaging, and assure stability of these products is adequately monitored fromt he moment each formulation becomes a product candidate until the end of its market life.
