For the evaluation of Cosmetics and Toiletries, Monde Selection can always rely on the collaboration of independent experts such as scientists, university professors and chemists. These experts award the Bronze, Silver, Gold or Grand Gold labels at the end of the selection process.

Evaluation process 

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.

Based on the result of the evaluations, the quality profile of your product will be established by our experts. This graph will be provided for free a the time of the result announcement.


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

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 lecturers and 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.
