This test includes a full quantitative analysis of a product to determine the Total Aerobic Microbial Count (TAMC) and Total Yeast and Mold Count (TYMC) present in the sample. Contamination of consumer products with bacteria and fungi is a common problem in the manufacturing process. Bacterial and fungal contamination is of particular concern in cosmetics and personal care products since these products come into direct contact with our bodies. Microbial contamination testing is essential to ensure the quality and integrity of your product.
Routine testing for the presence of bacteria and fungi can quickly reveal contamination from raw materials, and is often the first sign cosmetic formulators and manufacturers receive that there is a preservative problem with a product.
Our labs conduct microbiological testing of cosmetics and personal care products. We offer simple, inexpensive microbiological testing to ensure that bacteria and fungi levels are within manufacturing specifications.
