The Importance of Microbiological Testing and Quality Evaluation

Microbiological testing is a crucial aspect of cosmetics product safety. To meet the safety requirements of the European Cosmetics Regulation (EC 1223/2009) manufacturers shall assess the microbiological quality of raw materials, bulk products and final cosmetic formulation.

Microbiological quality evalutation typically includes the analysis of the contamination on the product (in most cases through testing) taking into account specific pathogens and their robustness against microbiological contamination, evaluated assessing the product preservative system (challenge testing).
