STERILIZATION OF COSMETIC PRODUCTS
In terms of reproduction factors such as humidity, medium acidity and appropriate minerals, Cosmetic product formulations used in cosmetic industry are quite convenient media for the micro organisms to live and reproduce. Moreover, such substances as carbohydrates, proteins, amino acids, vitamins, steroids, peptides, fatty acids, sugar and fat alcohols are the substantial food sources which support the reproduction of micro organisms. When these factors are evaluated, the risk of micro organism contamination in cosmetic products is high and the presence of this risk affects human health significantly.
Gamma irradiation is a method used in cosmetic products to reduce the number of micro organisms. By means of this method, micro organism contamination is lowered below the specified levels.
