Want to try new makeup and add money to your wallet? With Consumer Product Testing Labs (CPT), you can sample brand new self-care and beauty products before they go on store shelves and earn extra money while doing it. Simply sign up, visit the CPT laboratory to qualify and pick up the product, try it at home, and revisit CPT to report back (your feedback helps shape the final product). The best part is you get to test stuff you can really use, like moisturizer, makeup bag treats like bronzer and foundation, and family products like baby wipes. With studies updated weekly, you can all get in on the testing dates below (and earn money, too!) and sign up for future ones. Read on to learn more about CPT and how they’re taking action to keep their panelists and staff safe with state-mandated operating guidelines. And be sure to check back here for updates.

Here are CPT’s newest must-know trials

With studies available for women, men and kids, CPT is easy to sign up for and do. Click on the links for more in-depth details about each study, and keep in mind the initial visit determines if you qualify. Also, good to note: The studies change frequently, and they are constantly posting new ones, so be sure to like CPT’s Facebook page for daily updates and recent studies. When you’re ready to commit, check in with them to determine if the study you want is still available. You can also give them a call to make an appointment for getting qualified to become a panelist and be notified of the latest studies since they’re always taking new people to sign up and test products. FYI—Sunscreen products are tested in their photobiology laboratory, and all take-home studies pay $30 and up depending on the number of visits and how long the study lasts.

CPT Safety Measures Statement:

The health of our panelists and staff is our primary concern. Panelists will be contacted to schedule appointments for all studies, including patch tests. You will only be admitted into the facility if you have a scheduled appointment.

Consumer Product Testing℠ Company, Inc. (CPT℠) has implemented a Biosafety and Security Policy. The core objective is to establish sustainable, safe operations for our employees and panelists due to the COVID‐19 pandemic. We based our policy upon analyzing best practices and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), National Safety Council (NSC), and local and state guidance in New Jersey.

The new precautionary and safety procedures outlined below will help keep you and our staff safe during these challenging times when you arrive at our facility.
• CPT℠ will be limiting the number of panelists in our facility at any one time.

• While onsite, you will need to adhere to social distancing protocols. You will be asked to remain 6 feet apart from one another when in any waiting area. Each area will have spacing markers on the floor.

• We ask that you patiently wait your turn and allow more time for your visit due to the social distancing regulations.

• Our security officers will be helping facilitate social distancing and compliance with all safety procedures.

• Before your visit, you will be asked several questions concerning your general health, and you will be required to confirm those answers when you visit the facility. Any panelist exhibiting signs of COVID‐19 will not be scheduled for a clinical trial and will be turned away from our facility should they appear.

• Panelists will be required to keep your appointment schedules.

• Panelists will be required to arrive at the facility 15 minutes before their scheduled time. Personal items other than identification required for participation will not be allowed in the facility. You may be asked to wait in your car until you are called into the building. 

• Panelists will not be allowed to have anyone accompany them into the facility for their appointment. No children or additional family members.

• Panelists will be required to wear masks that meet minimum standards for their protection and our staff’s safety per the NJ State Mandate and the CPT℠ Biosafety and Security Policy. If the security officers deem that a mask does not meet the minimum standards, you will not be allowed in the building. You must keep the mask on at all times when onsite and in the facility.

• Panelists scheduled for a trial will have their temperature taken for a pass/fail, and any panelist who fails will not be admitted to the facility.

• Panelists admitted into the facility will sanitize their hands before entering the laboratory and again on leaving the facility.

• Panelists shall refrain from touching hard surfaces, such as doorknobs, counters, and benches.

• Panelists shall refrain from using the CPT℠ restrooms. Please plan ahead.

• Panelists will follow all traffic flow patterns established in the building, following the visual cues and staff directions for physical distancing.

• Panelists shall be provided trial documents that need to be read and signed in a container sanitized after each use. Their daily schedule, instructions, and additional study paperwork will be provided in this sealed plastic zip‐lock bag. Each time panelists arrive for their clinical trial, they will return with their trial documents in that sealed plastic zip‐lock bag.

• Panelists shall not loiter in the building but will sanitize their hands on exiting the building immediately upon completing their trial visit.

We want to make all of our panelists feel comfortable when participating in studies at our facility. We will be doing our best to make this a positive experience for our panelists. We welcome you to visit our website to see the summary of our policy for participating in a clinical trial, as well as available new studies.
