Central Quality Control laboratory

This laboratory is responsible for classical analytical chemistry tests and documentations related to tests performed, part of the controls related to raw materials and in-process as well as finished products, improvement in quality of existing products, increase in the varieties of products by identification of new raw materials followed by design steps for new hygienic products according to defined standards, are performed in this laboratory.
All quality controls for raw materials as well as in-process controls are done according to approved and validated sources such as ISIRI, BP, USP and in some cases, in-house methods.
In-process quality control laboratory (IPQC) inspects and supervises the entire production process in order to make sure that the GMP requirements are met from the beginning to the end that is , from weighting of the raw materials (BOM controls) to production of the finished product.
The documentation unit of this laboratory prepares and gathers all necessary work instructions, standard procedures (SOP) and certificate of analysis (for raw materials and finished products), these documents are regularly updated based on the latest editions and versions in circulations.
With the help of a team of laboratory experts in analytical methods and quality control of cosmetic and hygienic products, and also with approved national provincial certificates such as accreditation from Iranian certification body, ISO/IEC 17025, IFDO licenses for analytical work in junction with governmental laboratory assessment of quality and safety of products are performed routinely.

Scope of activities

Perform tests on cosmetic and hygienic raw materials

after the delivery to the factory, the personnel of this laboratory takes samples from each box, based on sampling work instructions and chemical analysis are carried out on samples, and then microbiological tests are also performed on samples. After approval, the planning department in conjunction with warehouse management, devise the products on plan accordingly.

Testing samples from different raw material sources

The commercial department in Iran Avandfar company receives samples from various raw material suppliers, samples are tested in the appropriate laboratory and after acceptance by the quality control laboratory, raw materials are purchased by commercial department.

Quality control of cosmetics and hygienic finished products

The general scientific belief about many chemicals is that these chemicals are safe for consumption by industry. If cosmetic and hygienic products are not suitable for use as far as their quality is concerned, they can cause hazards and risks for health.

Tests cosmetic and hygienic finished products

After completion of tests on raw materials and controls while in-process, samples from finished products are regularly taken and a complete range of physical, chemical tests are done on them to make sure the quality is acceptable and measured parameters are in range.

Planning for periodical tests

The central quality control laboratory is responsible for obtaining all the measurable and test parameters according to approved sources, and/ or analysis received from R&D section for first industrial scale production, in collaboration with QC laboratory and R&D laboratory.

Another activity of his laboratory is to perform the periodical tests which are done on three batches of each product.

Quality control laboratory of hygienic liquid production plant

Quality control of raw material, in-process products and new hygienic products are performed according to reference procedures from valid sources such as ISIRI, BP, USP, and in some cases, in-house methods.
In- process quality control (IPQC) laboratory is responsible for supervision of all production steps in order to make sure that GMP requirements ale observed at all stages from checking BOM, to production of finished products.

Scope of operation

To test hygienic and personal care products
To test all raw materials for the above products

Declaration of activities

The most important point in using any cosmetics or hygienic products such as hair care products, hand wash liquids, cleaners, all-purpose cleaners, and the rest is to ensure the quality of raw materials and finished products. In Iran Avandfar company, this important issue is dealt with by an experienced team of experts in the field of quality control and R&D, according to relevant standards issued by the standard organization of Iran.

Quality control laboratory of semi-solid (cream and gel) products

This laboratory performs daily controls of products during production and checks their quality characteristics in order to make sure that products with acceptable qualities are delivered to customers.

Targets and activities of R&D department

Daily inspection of equipment used in the production of semi-solid products and their related packaging materials assuring the proper functioning of all equipment

To maintain and improve the quality of finished products on the results of national standards and company’s work instructions, by daily precise controls of all sensual and chemical attributes of the products with assistance of the accredited – partner laboratory

Fault analysis of production process and taking corrective action if required

Daily control of process water with the assistance of other laboratories on-site, such as the accredited laboratory

Preparation of the SDS and finished products as well as products manufacturing products

To define key control indexes for quality checks of products, made in the plant

Daily control of products

بInspection, sampling and testing of products from sensual and physiochemical point of view, including visible characteristics absorbance into skin, skin feel, colour, PH, heat stability and rheological aspects, based on approved procedures and work instructions. Some tests are performed by accredited laboratory which is a partner unit.


Including records registry and keeping relevant documents

Control of conformity

To control the conformity of procedures with licenses and permits for production

List of main equipment and instruments












Multipurpose analyzer (MPA) 580 for skin analysis of creams


Heater/stirrer units


PH meter


Melting point

Packaging and physical quality control laboratory

Scope of activities

To control packaging materials delivered to the factory and comparison with standards devised in-house for items

Categories of materials:







Bottles and containers


Triggers and foam dispensers










Shrinking raw materials such as nylons and cellophanes


OPP tapes (adhesive tapes)


Control finished products packing appearance and weight



The weight controls of samples are controlled against the weight printed on the packaging and these checks are more strict than nationally defined weights and tolerances.



For each item test parameters are defined, for example labels should be well stuck onto the bottles.


Product appearances

All packaging materials should be clean, with no leakage.


Seal tests

Bottles should be sealed properly and caps should be fitted properly and on threads.


OPP tapes

All cartons should be properly sealed, by using adhesive (OPP) tapes in such manner that prevents dust to enter the carton.


Print check

All products of liquid and semi-solid production lines should have proper information printed on them (jet printed); These include production date, expiry date and other mandatory labeling information.


Documentation of all quality attributes and performing tests in order to reduce costs and financial savings in all packaging materials especially bottles, boxes, and cartons.


Complete and thorough supervision of hold making processes, caps and bottles, out-sourced to external suppliers, final confirmation of documents prior to any payment made to suppliers.


Investigation and consideration of custom complaints with regards to packaging and reporting to management.


To train and educate technical staff to perform packaging quality controls and training the supplier’s personnel if needed.


Communication with suppliers for reporting any nonconformity or problem, seen in packaging lines, or delivery of packaging items and the follow-up action until the non-conformity is eliminated and satisfactory results are obtained.


Cooperation with the commercial and commercial departments for finding new suppliers and approval of their technical capabilities.


Inspection of suppliers of packaging supplies and transmission of defects to them.
