This standard is comprised of: a. Preservation Efficacy Test b. Procedure for evaluating the overall preservation of a cosmetic product which is not considered low risk, based on a risk assessment according to ISO 29621. A Preservation Efficacy Test This test is a reference method that may be used to evaluate the preservation of finished products in the market place. It can also be used as guidelines to develop an in-house method used in the development stage of a formulation. Other suitable development methods may be used to determine preservation efficacy of formulation during product development (see below). This test is primarily designed for water soluble or water miscible cosmetic products, and can require adaptation, for example to test products in which water is the internal phase. The test described in this standard involves, for each test micro-organism, placing the formulation in contact with a calibrated inoculum, and then following the changes in the micro-organism count at set time intervals for a set period and at a set temperature. When used for the development of a cosmetic product, the test can be modified and (or) extended, for example to make allowance for prior data and different variables (microbial strains, media, incubation conditions exposure time, etc.). Compliance criteria can be adapted to specific objectives. Other methods where relevant can be used in the development phase of cosmetic products. The Preservation Efficacy test is not required for those cosmetic products for which the risk analysis demonstrates that the microbiological risk has been determined to be low.(see Annex A and ISO 29621). B Procedure for Evaluating the Preservation of the Cosmetic Product This procedure is based on careful consideration of all the following points: - The results of the Preservation Efficacy Test. Not all cosmetic products will require a Preservation Efficacy Test (see Annex A and ISO 29621). - Formulation characteristics and data provided by the microbiological risk assessment (see ISO 29621). The analysis of the microbiological risk assessment is based on an overall approach. In particular it integrates variables such as the formulation characteristics and composition of the formulation, its production conditions, the characteristics of the packaging in which the formulation will be delivered to the market place, recommendations for use of the cosmetic product and when relevant, area of application and the targeted user population..
