Determination and analysis of preservatives in cosmetic products

Your needs : to determine and analyze the preservative content of your cosmetic products in accordance with relevant regulations

The role preservatives play in cosmetic products is manifold : to protect them from all kinds of pollutions such as bacteria while ensuring the preservation of the product’s quality over time. Preservatives maintain the stability of cosmetic products. Poor preservation would result in a lower quality product (odor, cleanliness…) and could also pose a risk to consumers.

There are 2 types of preservatives :

  • Antibacterial/Antifungal preservatives : to limit the development of microorganisms such as fungi and bacteria 
  • Antioxidants : to limit the oxidation of cosmetic products

The use of preservatives in cosmetic products is regulated at limited concentrations. This is why the determination of preservative content in cosmetic products is a crucial step for cosmetic industrialists to take.
