Analytical Testing of Cosmetics - Whitepaper
Cosmetic products may contain ingredients that could pose health risks. In addition to a long list of completely banned substances (such as hormones), cosmetics must not contain harmful substances in concentration in excess of certain limits. Precise analysis and monitoring of ingredients ensures the quality and safety of cosmetic products. This whitepaper provides an overview of the most common active ingredients and harmful substances in cosmetics, a brief summary of sample preparation methods for the complex matrices of cosmetic products and recent case studies on the analysis of different substance classes.
