Buy Vegan EP Challenge Testing - Cosmetic challenge test

European Pharmacopoeia - 5.1.3 “Efficacy of Antimicrobial Preservation"

This Vegan version of the Preservative Efficacy Test (PET) or cosmetic challenge test, is essential for assessing the safety of cosmetic products susceptible to spoiling, such as those which require preservation or that contain water. According to the EU Cosmetic Products Regulation, for these cosmetic products it is a legal requirement to include the results of a challenge test in the Cosmetic Product Safety Report (CPSR) before they can be sold.

The European Pharmacopoeia test method is commonly used for products sold in the European Union and United Kingdom but is recognised worldwide.
