In the cosmetic industry, as in any final product quality control analysis, a broth must be used to dilute or enrich the sample to be analyzed. The presence of preservatives in cosmetics makes this first step of the procedure vital as, if a regular diluent is used, false negatives may be obtained. Why? Because the presence of preservatives, even if there were pathogenic organisms, would not . enable their development. www.condalab.com
