Figures and Tables from this paper

Microbial Analysis of Selected Brands of Whitening Creams
TLDR
There should be checking during fabrication, packaging and storing of the cosmeceuticals brands by the regulatory bodies and intensive care the operation as well as the supply of cosmetics products among the health-care stores.
Survey of micro‐organisms associated with spoilage of cosmetic creams manufactured in South Africa
TLDR
The importance of adopting suitable quality control guidelines for the local cosmetics industry, similar to those currently used by international cosmetics manufacturers, is highlighted.
Loss of effectiveness of preservative systems of mascaras with age
TLDR
The preservative systems of unused, anhydrous mascaras were challenged periodically with microorganisms, using a modified membrane procedure, resulting in variations in shelf life of preservative activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
MICROBIAL CONTAMINATION OF COSMETICS AND PERSONAL CARE ITEMS IN EGYPT—EYE SHADOWS, MASCARAS AND FACE CREAMS
TLDR
Qualitative tests for detection of hazardous bacteria showed that none of the eye shadows were contaminated with any of the micro‐organisms, and the face creams were generally more heavily contaminated than eye shadows and mascaras.
Bacillus cereus in personal care products: risk to consumers
TLDR
It is unlikely that more stringent microbiological standards for near‐eye cosmetics will have any impact on the risk of severe eye infections caused by B. cereus, as these are not linked to use of personal care products.
Staphylococcus Aureus Adherence to Nasal Epithelial Cells: Studies of Some Parameters
TLDR
The current in vitro model utilizing isolated epithelial cells and bacteria represents procedures that most closely resemble the human system, thus enbling us to study the bacterial and host factors independently.
Fusarium keratitis and contact lens wear: facts and speculations.
TLDR
A decline of the anti-fusaria properties of the MPS in the lens case appeared related to its dissociation from drying, or dilution and the potential for sorption of antimicrobial solution components to various hydrogel lenses.

Toxin-producing strains of Staphylococcus epidermidis (albus). Isolates from patients with staphylococcic blepharoconjunctivitis.
TLDR
Cell-free filtrates of cultures of Staphylococcus epidermidis were prepared from patients with definite clinical signs and symptoms of staphylococcic blepharoconjunctivitis, and although less severe than the disease produced by the S aureusfiltrates, a significant and sometimes severe toxicogenic conjunctiveitis was produced.
