  • Mandatory Tests in Cosmetic Products

Cosmetics must be safe according to the Cosmetic Product Safety Assessment Guide. Certain analyzes of cosmetic products are required for this purpose. Tests for safe cosmetic products are as follows.

Physical Analysis
The characteristics of the product such as color, odor, appearance, pH, density, viscosity should be analyzed according to the quality and technology.

Stability Test
Stability studies, monitored properties and test results showing that a cosmetic product continues to perform its initial functions under normal conditions and remain safe should be tabulated with test methods and results, especially for products with a shelf life exceeding 30 months.

Heavy metal analysis:
In particular, heavy metal analysis should be performed due to the raw materials used in products such as blush and lipstick, which are called colored cosmetics. Heavy metal analysis in cosmetics is lead, cadmium, mercury, arsenic and antimony.

Does not include Tests and Claims Tests:
According to the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health, if the label includes “paraben-free”, “silicone-free”, “phthalate-free”, it is obligatory to carry out analyzes.

Microbiological Analysis:
Cosmetic products must be microbiologically safe. Microbiological analysis is important for all cosmetic products, except for a few low-risk cosmetics (hair dyes, etc.). Especially baby products and products that come into contact with the eye area are more risky in this respect. Total bacterial and mold-yeast analyzes, especially pathogens, should be performed.

Challenge Test
Challenge tests are tests that show the effectiveness of preservatives used in the product against microorganisms.

All these tests are performed in our laboratory. You can send an e-mail to satis@saniter.com.tr for information.
