There have been recent and very public recalls of cosmetic products contaminated with microorganisms. Given the environmental and financial impact of a microbial contamination event, cosmetic and personal care manufacturers should develop and be committed to a contamination control strategy.
Where do you start? Environmental monitoring (EM) programs are all about evaluating microbial risk in your facilities. This consists of designing and implementing controls around your cleaning, batching process, and product filling to reduce microbial contamination at your manufacturing sites. EM programs help you establish a state of control of your manufacturing sites and support quicker response and remediation when there is a contamination event.
