Preservatives can inhibit the growth of microorganisms and ensure the safety and effectiveness of cosmetics during production, use and preservation. CD Formulation can provide preservative content testing services to help customers quickly understand sample performance and better conduct follow-up research.
In the process of production and use of cosmetics, it is inevitable that there will be microbial invasion. If you do not add effective ingredients to inhibit microorganisms, it may deteriorate, not reach the desired effect, and even threaten the health of the user. Preservative is a substance added to cosmetics for the purpose of inhibiting microorganisms in cosmetics.
At present, there are high performance liquid chromatography, gas chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry for the determination of preservatives in cosmetics. High performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) is the most widely used preservative analysis method at present. Because most of the preservatives are macromolecular organic compounds, and have UV absorption characteristics, it is more suitable for HPLC analysis. This method has the advantages of simple operation and high sensitivity.
CD Formulation provides these detectors, which can test the sample efficiently and quickly, helping customers get the content of preservatives in cosmetics. The detailed procedure is as follows.
