Special Focus on Cosmetics and Personal Care Microbiology
Manufacturers of cosmetics and personal care products have a responsibility to ensure that the products they market are safe and not contaminated with harmful microorganisms. Whilst cosmetics do not need to be sterile they do need to be made under hygienic conditions. So what resources are available to manufacturers of cosmetics and personal care products to help them ensure compliance with existing standards? In this special focus we are delighted to include contributions from Liofilchem, Charles River, Sy-Lab, Promicol and Microbiologics.
Since cosmetics and personal care products are FDA-regulated, manufacturers are held accountable for the safety and quality of their products. Charles River offers microbial solutions to help the consumer care industry comply with best practices for QC. more...
