This document specifies a procedure for the interpretation of data generated by the preservation
efficacy test or by the microbiological risk assessment, or both, when evaluating the overall
antimicrobial protection of a cosmetic product.
It comprises:
— a preservation efficacy test;
— a procedure for evaluating the overall antimicrobial protection of a cosmetic product that is not
considered low risk, based on a risk assessment described in ISO 29621.
The preservation efficacy test is a reference method to evaluate the preservation of a cosmetic
formulation. It is applicable to cosmetic products in the marketplace.
This test does not apply to those cosmetic products for which the microbiological risk has been
determined to be low according to Annex A and ISO 29621.
This test is primarily designed for water-soluble or water-miscible cosmetic products and can be used
with modification to test products in which water is the internal (discontinuous) phase.
NOTE This test can be used as a guideline to establish a development method during the development cycle
of cosmetic products. In this case, the test can be modified or extended, or both, 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. During the development stage of cosmetic products,
other methods, where relevant, can be used to determine the preservation efficacy of formulations.

This document describes a screening method for rapid sampling and identifying of diethanolamine
(DEA) in cosmetics and raw materials used in cosmetics by gas chromatography – mass spectroscopy
(GC-MS).
This method is not applicable to the detection and/or quantification of DEA-related ingredients.
When this method is used to analyse unfamiliar sample matrices analysts are advised to confirm the
applicability and flexibility of the techniques in their matrix.
Under the conditions specified this method is reliable for quantification with DEA level at 1 000 mg/kg
(0,1 %).
However, samples with lower concentrations (<0,1 %) or otherwise unusual compositions or
characteristics can present difficulties (such as, for example, peak tailing) that preclude the direct use
of this method.

This Technical Report introduces most common and typical analytical approaches for screening and
quantification of heavy metals of general interest at both raw material and finished product level. This
Technical Report covers techniques from traditional colourimetric reaction, which can be executed
without expensive instrument to the high-end one, like that of inductively coupled plasma-mass
spectrometry (ICP-MS), which allows detection of elements at μg/kg level. Thus, this Technical Report
covers the advantages and disadvantages of each analytical technique so that a suitable approach can
be chosen.
The intent of this Technical Report is not to set or suggest acceptable concentration limits of heavy
metals in both raw materials and finished products which have to be determined by each regulatory
authority.
NOTE 1 The term “heavy metals” is widely used without single definition.
NOTE 2 Elements can be specified as heavy metals by one legislation, while not by others.

ISO 16212:2017 gives general guidelines for enumeration of yeast and mould present in cosmetics by counting the colonies on selective agar medium after aerobic incubation.
In order to ensure product quality and safety for consumers, it is advisable to perform an appropriate microbiological risk analysis to determine the types of cosmetic products to which ISO 16212:2017 is applicable. Products considered to present a low microbiological risk (see ISO 29621) include those with low water activity or extreme pH values, hydro-alcoholic products, etc.
Because of the large variety of cosmetic products within this field of application, this method might not be suited to some products in every detail (e.g. certain water-immiscible products). Other methods (e.g. automated) can be substituted for the tests presented here provided that their equivalence has been demonstrated or the method has been otherwise shown to be suitable.
Yeast enumerated can be identified using suitable identification tests, for example, tests described in the standards listed in the Bibliography. Mould enumerated can be identified by other appropriate methods, if necessary.

ISO 18415:2017 gives general guidelines for the detection and identification of specified microorganisms in cosmetic products as well as for the detection and identification of other kinds of aerobic mesophilic non-specified microorganisms in cosmetic products.
Microorganisms considered as specified in this document might differ from country to country according to national practices or regulations. Most of them considered as specified microorganisms include one or more of the following species: Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans.
In order to ensure product quality and safety for consumers, it is advisable to perform an appropriate microbiological risk analysis to determine the types of cosmetic products to which this document is applicable. Products considered to present a low microbiological risk (see ISO 29621) include those with low water activity, hydro-alcoholic products, extreme pH values, etc.
The method described in this document is based on the detection of microbial growth in a non-selective liquid medium (enrichment broth) suitable to detect microbial contamination, followed by isolation of microorganisms on non-selective agar media. Other methods can be appropriate depending on the level of detection required.
In ISO 18415:2017 specific indications are given for identification of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans. Other microorganisms that grow under the conditions described in this document may be identified by using suitable tests according to a general scheme (see Annex A).

ISO 21149:2017 gives general guidelines for enumeration and detection of aerobic mesophilic bacteria present in cosmetics
- by counting the colonies on agar medium after aerobic incubation, or
- by checking the absence of bacterial growth after enrichment.
Because of the large variety of cosmetic products within this field of application, this method may not be appropriate for some products in every detail (e.g. certain water immiscible products). Other methods (e.g. automated) may be substituted for the tests presented here provided that their equivalence has been demonstrated or the method has been otherwise shown to be suitable.
If needed, microorganisms enumerated or detected may be identified using suitable identification tests described in the standards given in the Bibliography.
In order to ensure product quality and safety for consumers, it is advisable to perform an appropriate microbiological risk analysis to determine the types of cosmetic products to which this document is applicable. Products considered to present a low microbiological risk (see ISO 29621) include those with low water activity, hydro-alcoholic products, extreme pH values, etc.

ISO 16212:2017 gives general guidelines for enumeration of yeast and mould present in cosmetics by counting the colonies on selective agar medium after aerobic incubation. In order to ensure product quality and safety for consumers, it is advisable to perform an appropriate microbiological risk analysis to determine the types of cosmetic products to which ISO 16212:2017 is applicable. Products considered to present a low microbiological risk (see ISO 29621) include those with low water activity or extreme pH values, hydro-alcoholic products, etc. Because of the large variety of cosmetic products within this field of application, this method might not be suited to some products in every detail (e.g. certain water-immiscible products). Other methods (e.g. automated) can be substituted for the tests presented here provided that their equivalence has been demonstrated or the method has been otherwise shown to be suitable. Yeast enumerated can be identified using suitable identification tests, for example, tests described in the standards listed in the Bibliography. Mould enumerated can be identified by other appropriate methods, if necessary.

ISO 18415:2017 gives general guidelines for the detection and identification of specified microorganisms in cosmetic products as well as for the detection and identification of other kinds of aerobic mesophilic non-specified microorganisms in cosmetic products. Microorganisms considered as specified in this document might differ from country to country according to national practices or regulations. Most of them considered as specified microorganisms include one or more of the following species: Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans. In order to ensure product quality and safety for consumers, it is advisable to perform an appropriate microbiological risk analysis to determine the types of cosmetic products to which this document is applicable. Products considered to present a low microbiological risk (see ISO 29621) include those with low water activity, hydro-alcoholic products, extreme pH values, etc. The method described in this document is based on the detection of microbial growth in a non-selective liquid medium (enrichment broth) suitable to detect microbial contamination, followed by isolation of microorganisms on non-selective agar media. Other methods can be appropriate depending on the level of detection required. In ISO 18415:2017 specific indications are given for identification of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans. Other microorganisms that grow under the conditions described in this document may be identified by using suitable tests according to a general scheme (see Annex A). Other standards (e.g. ISO 18416, ISO 21150, ISO 22717, ISO 22718) may be appropriate. Because of the large variety of cosmetic products within this field of application, this method might not be suited in every detail to some products (e.g. certain water-immiscible products). Other methods (e.g. automated) can be substituted for the tests presented here provided that their equivalence has been demonstrated or the method has been otherwise shown to be suitable.
