    Consumers trust that products are clean and safe and will not adversely affect their health, safety, and well-being. No matter where in the world your cosmetic ingredients are manufactured or formulated, Sterigenics can help you meet required safety standards and reduce microbial counts.

    Cosmetic products are often formulated from a blend of natural, raw, and chemical materials. Sterigenics routinely processes cosmetics and packaging to reduce bacteria counts, as well as sporadic contaminations, to help ensure the safe distribution of a wide variety of health and beauty aids (HBA).

    • Talc
    • Pigments

    Did you know?

    Cosmetics contaminated with sporadic mold or yeast can be decontaminated with gamma processing. Gamma irradiation is a non-invasive process, which means cosmetics are not removed from their packaging. Gamma penetrates various types of packaging and reaches all microorganisms regardless of the intricacies of the package. Post-irradiation, there are no residuals left on the product. Products salvaged. Problem Solved.
