Challenge testing is mandatory for all products that in normal conditions of storage and use, run a risk of contamination by the consumer or a deterioration of the product exists. The challenge test consists of an artificial inoculation of the finished product and a posterior evaluation of the decrease of this contamination to acceptable levels over time. This ensures the microbial limits established for the product are meet. This assay is mainly performed in cosmetics and toiletry products.
