Abstract

Personal care products contain variable amounts of natural material such as nutrients that support microbial growth. Cosmetic products such as shampoo, hand and body lotion, facial wash, and liquid soaps were obtained from the local market and analyzed for their microbial content. In this study out of forty cosmetic products analyzed, twenty were found to contain yeast and mould and gave total bacterial count. However these were within the limits of BIS 14648. No pathogens were found in the samples. Some raw materials such as xanthan gum and veegum ultra clay were also analysed for microbial content.
