Cosmetics and personal care products are usually in direct contact with the human body, and many microbiological tests are involved in their production and development processes. Creative BioMart Microbe has established a complete and advanced microbial technology service system that can meet multiple microbiological testing needs of customers in the cosmetics and personal care products industry.
Cosmetics containing water are generally rich in microorganisms, and microorganisms have strong growth and reproduction ability in cosmetics. Microorganisms may cause cosmetic deterioration. In addition, the improper way consumers use cosmetics may aggravate microbial contamination in cosmetics. Cosmetics are usually in direct contact with the human body, which may pose a threat to human health. Preservatives are generally added to cosmetics to inhibit the growth of microorganisms. It is especially important for cosmetics manufacturers to ensure the efficacy of preservatives and to ensure that the product does not contain pathogenic microorganisms, and these all mean that microbiological testing measures need to be taken.
Cosmetics and personal care products placed on the market for sale need to comply with the microbiological norms established by regulations. Cosmetics contain different microorganisms, and these microorganisms may endanger the health of consumers during their use. Therefore, microbiology testing is very necessary for the cosmetics industry. Microbiology testing services involve a variety of tests for microorganisms in samples, including total aerobic plate count, yeast and mold count, and the detection of specific pathogens such as Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli.
Challenging tests, also known as preservative efficacy test (PET), can be used to determine the risk of harmful microorganism growth. The test results help customers evaluate the efficacy of preservatives in their products. The challenge test generally involves inoculating cosmetics with specific microbial strains, and then testing the samples at different time intervals to determine the survival rate of the microbial strains, thereby evaluating the efficacy of the preservative system.
Stability testing helps customers determine the shelf life of products during the development of cosmetics and personal care products. The main purpose of stability testing is to determine that under proper storage conditions, the product can meet the specified physical, chemical and microbiological quality standards during its validity period. Stability testing services include real-time stability testing, accelerated stability testing, freeze-thaw stability testing and photostability testing.
For customers in the cosmetics and personal care products industry, it may be necessary to identify the microorganisms isolated from the product. We provide customers in the cosmetics industry with efficient microbial identification services. Our microbial identification technical services include conventional morphological identification, API identification, sequence analysis identification, etc.
