In order to objectively evaluate the quality of cosmetics and toiletries, Monde Selection has established an evaluation sheet with about twenty different parameters including:

  • List of ingredients
  • Content and form of commercial claims
  • Correct description of the function of the product
  • Verification of the labelling and its compliance
  • Special precautions for use
  • Coherence between commercial claims and product composition
  • Innovative nature of the product
  • Scientific effectiveness of the product stated for the consumer
  • Enough active elements to achieve the effects stated
  • User-friendliness (pleasure, smell, texture, penetration rate, etc.)
  • Skin tolerance
  • General effectiveness of the product based on application tests

All the analyses are carried out at the Institut Meurice from the CERIA, Centre d'Enseignement et de Recherche des Industries Alimentaires et chimiques.

Each parameter is weighted and contributes to the final result of the general evaluation of the product.


The experience of the Jury, of which some members have been working with Monde Selection for over 25 years, is certainly the best guarantee of good and fair evaluation of quality.

It is these years of experience that make the members of our jury capable of judging products from all over the world with the subtlety required for this task.

This jury is composed of a college of independent experts including:

  • chemists
  • university professors
  • cosmetic product specialists

Through their professions, they are always abreast of developments in scientific research and legislation in relation to cosmetics and toiletries.

All the analyses are carried out at the Institut Meurice du CERIA, Centre d'Enseignement et de Recherche des Industries Alimentaires et chimiques.
