With a complex set of consumer, regulatory, and production demands, assessing product quality and safety can seem daunting for many brands and manufacturers of cosmetic and personal care products.
To help businesses better understand quality control, MSL Solution Providers is hosting a free webinar on Wednesday, 11 November 2020 at 02:00 PM Greenwich Mean Time.
The hour-long seminar will consist of a talk by leading industry experts and end with a live Q&A session. Ben Elmadi, Business Development Microbiologist at MSL Solution Providers, will explain, in clear, easy-to-understand language, why microbial quality is important, how quality control can mitigate the risk of contamination, and the mandatory tests to ensure both safety and regulatory compliance.
This includes the ‘Preservative Efficacy or Challenge Test (ISO 11930)’, which ensures microbiological quality, establishing that a product’s preservative system can withstand microbial contamination during use.
The presentation will also cover the systems available for testing, including VeganSure. A pioneering and unique testing solution, this replaces all animal-derived ingredients with plant derived or synthetic alternatives, to assure the safety of a cosmetic product without compromising vegan ethics.
VeganSure is ideal for vegan-friendly products and is registered with The Vegan Society’s trademark.
Angela Davies, CEO of MSL Solution Providers, comments: ‘Microbial contamination issues can and do pose risks to human health as well as causing significant financial losses to businesses due to reworking, spoilage, destruction, and recall of product.
"Microbiological testing is a key aspect of cosmetic product safety and a requirement of the Cosmetic Regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009.
"Through this webinar, we hope to help businesses in the cosmetic and personal care industry better understand both the requirements of quality control and the solutions available."
