Most of the cosmetics, homecare and personal care products have a long shelf life which may vary from few months to years. Microbial contamination in any personal care product during its shelf life may result in chemical changes or spoilage of the product, thus making it unsafe for use. Preservatives are therefore added to these products to protect and prevent their spoilage.
It is therefore essential to perform Antimicrobial Effectiveness Testing to ensure that the preservative used is sufficient to combat the introduction of micro-organisms. At VIMTA, we offer antimicrobial efficacy testing in accordance with regulations to ensure that the product is not prone to microbial contamination during its shelf life.
