Partnering opportunity

Platform to evaluate the efficacy of skin care and personal care products


A Singapore SME with expertise in skin care solutions has developed a technology platform for evaluating the efficacy of skin care and personal care products and ingredients. The technology platform helps companies to distinguish a product and enhance brand appeal. The SME is seeking partners including all sizes of SMEs and MNEs through technology licensing or research cooperation agreements for technology commercialization opportunities.

Partner sought

The Singapore SME seeks to partner SMEs of all sizes and MNEs. The partner can be personal care product developers or formulators or manufacturers of cosmetic and/or personal care ingredients or independent agencies testing personal care or cosmetic products. The desired type of partnerships would be via: 1) License agreement - the partner could license and further develop the technology to bring it to commercialization. 2) Research co-operation agreement - both parties could collaborate to co-develop it further in introducing the technology to targeted market segments.


The Singapore-based SME has developed the technology platform that helps in designing and conducting efficacy studies; it helps in providing scientific clinical data to validate safety and product claims in labelling. The platform, intended for use in skin care and personal care products and ingredients, helps conduct anti-aging, anti-inflammation, and anti-sensitive tests. It can establish the whitening and brightening efficacy of ingredients and formulations as well as evaluate the skin hydration barrier functionality. It can also help in performing safety and sensory evaluations of new products. The SME seeks potential partnerships and research cooperation agreements for the developed technology platform from SMEs of all sizes and MNEs for technology commercialization.

Advantages and innovations

The technology platform, mainly targeted towards skin care and personal care product developers, is able to evaluate the efficacy and risks of each chemical/ingredient used in cosmetic/personal care formulations and developed products. The results of the efficacy studies can be used by product developers and companies to substantiate product labelling claims and also use the test results as evidence for proving the effectiveness of the ingredient/product in clinical trial settings and as evidence to boost customer confidence. The developed technology platform will help personal care companies by boosting customer confidence and promoting brand awareness, thus increasing their market presence.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
