Microbiological issues play a central role in the quality assurance of cosmetics. This requires appropriate microbiological expertise and know-how. In addition to microbiological training, this microbiological expertise can also be acquired through professional experience, literature, further training and seminars. Basic microbiological knowledge is most helpful.
On the homepage of the DGK (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Kosmetik) you can find two new documents from the group “Microbiology and Industrial Hygiene”, which provide valuable assistance regarding the microbiological safety and harmlessness of your products.
The basic requirements for microbiological testing are explained in one of the documents in the form of answers to individual questions.
