woman_scientistPreservative challenge testing is obviously an essential step that must be taken before any personal care product launch. The risks of not conducting challenge testing are serious. Microbiological contamination can lead to product instability, changes in odor or color, and can possibly be a health hazard to the consumer. Improper preservation can lead to expensive product recalls and be detrimental to your brand image.

Challenge testing can be an especially expensive endeavor if your challenge test fails – not only have you lost time to launch but you have lost money. With many companies stepping outside their comfort zone into using less traditional preservatives, perhaps more natural or “alternative” preservation methods, there is an increased risk that products may fail challenge testing. With that in mind, it is extremely important to utilize the expertise of preservative suppliers, such as schülke, when selecting preservatives.

Global preservative leader, schülke, has offered challenge testing to their customer base for many years. schülke makes it both easy and cost effective to consider switching or moving to one of the increasingly popular schülke preservatives (i.e sensiva® SC 50, euxyl® PE 9010). The company does not simply sell preservatives – they help personal care manufacturers launch safe and effective products.
schülke invites you to discuss challenge testing with your ROSS Technical Sales Representative. For further information, you may contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
