Microbiological testing for cosmetics and personal care products form an important part of quality control and can ensure the safety of your products along the supply chain.

Examining products for their risk of contamination under normal use conditions, we conduct a range of microbiological tests to help you assess the safety or efficacy of raw materials, components, ingredients and final products.

Microbiological testing of cosmetics and personal products identifies microbial contamination, including: 

  1. Total plate count 
  2. Yeast and mold – identification 
  3. Pathogens – identification 
  4. Challenge test
