What Is Preservative Efficacy Test for Cosmetics?

Antiseptic efficacy testing aims to determine the effectiveness of antimicrobial agents present in cosmetics. These tests evaluate the ability of cosmetics to kill or inhibit the growth of microorganisms. The most common test is the preservative efficacy test (PET). PET evaluates the effectiveness of preservatives in preventing the growth of microorganisms in cosmetics.

Preservative Efficacy Test for Cosmetics

Cosmetic preservative efficacy challenge testing, also known as antimicrobial effectiveness testing, is a microbiological test that evaluates the ability of a product's preservative system to prevent bacterial, fungal, and yeast growth. The test measures the effectiveness of the preservative system under "challenge" conditions, which simulate the conditions that may occur during normal product use.

Our Preservative Efficacy Testing Services

There are several factors that can affect the efficacy of a preservative system, including the type of microorganisms present, the product formulation, the storage conditions, and the packaging materials. Alfa Chemistry's preservative efficacy challenge testing can provide valuable insights into the performance of the product's preservative system under varying conditions.

Advanced Preservative Efficacy Testing Technology

Alfa Chemistry is constantly updating our testing technology to meet the highest standard testing needs of our customers. Our advanced cosmetic preservative efficacy testing techniques and systems include automated systems, microfluidics, laser-diffraction, imaging technology, and flow cytometry, etc.

  • Automated Systems: Automated testing systems can perform tests quickly and accurately, minimizing the risk of human error, and can perform multiple tests simultaneously to saves time and resources.
  • Microfluidics: In cosmetic preservative efficacy testing, microfluidics can perform tests on smaller samples with greater precision. It can also perform tests in a more controlled environment, reducing the risk of contamination.
  • Laser-Diffraction: It can be used to measure the particle size distribution of microorganisms in cosmetic samples. This information can be used to determine the effectiveness of preservatives at different concentrations.
  • Flow Cytometry: It is used to measure the viability of microorganisms in a product, and it can also be used to determine the impact of preservatives on microorganism growth.
