  • Rapid Aerobic Count (RAC) – 24-hour test
  • Aerobic Count (AC) – 48-hour test
  • Rapid Yeast and Mold (RYM) – 48-hour test


This 40-day test simulates 2 years of aging for an unopened product. The product is placed in 40°C for 40 days and afterwards is tested for bacteria, yeast and mold growth. The end result will indicate the overall stability of the formula, and how well it holds up over time.
