Cosmetics -- Microbiology -- Guidelines for the risk assessment and identification of microbiologically low-risk products

The objective of ISO 29621:2010 is to help cosmetic manufacturers and regulatory bodies define those finished products that, based on a risk assessment, present a low risk of microbial contamination during production and/or use, and therefore, do not require the application of microbiological International Standards for cosmetics.
