How Can Consumers Protect Cosmetic Product Against Microbial Contamination?
  • Cosmetic products are also exposed to contamination during use. Microorganism growth can occur when products such as creams, eye shadow, shampoos, mascaras, toothpastes, mouthwashes, face powders and face lotions are kept in the bathroom and under humidity.
  • Microorganisms can be transferred to cosmetic products that are used by hand (if you have to put your fingers into the container) through the fingers. Hands should be washed before use.
  • Microorganisms may enter shampoos and similar products used in the shower through splashing from the lid that is open during use. The mouth of the product should be closed after use.
  • Microorganisms can be transmitted to mouth water from saliva. Therefore, the user must also comply with hygiene rules to prevent contamination.
  • Sunscreens are used by the whole family. Considering that it is used several times throughout the day, there will be contamination from different people each time it is opened.
  • Adding water or similar liquids to cosmetics such as mascara introduces bacteria or other microorganisms. Such practices should not be done.
  • If cosmetics get too hot, some microorganisms can multiply faster and preservatives can break down. Cosmetics should be stored carefully.
