  • Cosmetic Ingredient Analyses

Beauty and personal care products are widely used to support skin, hair and body care. However, the ingredients of these products should be carefully examined because they are important for our skin health and safety. Cosmetic content analyzes are special and scientific tests applied to evaluate the content and quality of products. In order for these tests to be safe and stable, they must be performed by expert analysts in laboratories.

Cosmetic Ingredient Analyses

Cosmetic ingredient analyzes provide consumers with more information about the ingredients of products. These analyzes help consumers avoid allergens. In some countries, products are required to have some content analysis reports in order to be released into the market. If the results required for the products to be put on the market are stated in the reports, the product is allowed to be released on the market in that country. They also contribute to promoting innovation and quality control in the cosmetics industry. Some of the cosmetic ingredient analyzes applied for cosmetic products are as follows:

Heavy Metal Analysis

Heavy metals are naturally occurring elements that can be toxic to humans and animals. They can be found in the environment, including in soil, water, and air. Heavy metals can also be found in some cosmetics, such as lipstick, eye shadow, and nail polish.

Exposure to heavy metals can cause a variety of health problems.

In cosmetics, heavy metals are often used as colorants, preservatives, or stabilizers. However, there are safer alternatives to these ingredients that do not pose a health risk.

Consumers can help to protect themselves from exposure to heavy metals in cosmetics by reading the product label carefully. If a product contains a heavy metal, it must be listed on the label. Consumers should also avoid products that are not labeled.

Governments around the world are working to regulate the use of heavy metals in cosmetics. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has set limits on the amount of certain heavy metals that can be present in cosmetics.

By being aware of the risks of heavy metals in cosmetics, consumers can make informed choices about the products they use.

Gluten Analysis

Gluten is a group of proteins found primarily in grains such as wheat, barley and rye. It has a close relationship with cereal grains. Therefore, these grains contain gluten.

Grains and grain products, which have an important place in our diet, can cause discomfort in some people.

The main factor causing the disease is the subfraction of the gluten protein called gliadin. As a result of consuming gluten-containing foods, the absorption of various nutrients needed by the body decreases.

The most common disease caused by gluten is Celiac disease. The second gluten-related disease is gluten allergy. Although it is frequently mentioned among the foods that cause allergies, gluten allergy is not that common. Today, it is accepted that celiac disease is a disease caused by genetic and environmental factors. Celiac disease is known as a lifelong food allergy.

Gluten allergy is a small intestine allergy of genetic origin. This allergy is found in wheat, barley, oats and grains. It is also added to the list of ingredients in many foods today as a thickening agent. Gluten intolerance causes gluten allergy.

After all the foods we eat are digested in the stomach, they are absorbed by the villus protrusions in the small intestine and mix with the blood. Since gluten destroys the villi, babies and adults with this allergy begin to not receive the nutrients necessary for the body. And this causes some problems in the immune system.

There are many gluten-free cosmetics available on the market. Consumers who are concerned about gluten in cosmetics should read the product label carefully. If a product contains gluten, it must be listed on the label.

Gluten allergen analysis is carried out in our laboratory, even at low levels, and it is accredited to report whether the product contains gluten or not.

Total Active Materials Analysis

Ingredients considered as total active substances have the ability to clean surfaces. This feature makes it widely used in the production of many types of cleaning materials and detergents. Although total active ingredients usually bring to mind the cleaning materials and detergent industry, these ingredients are also frequently used in the cosmetics industry. We can perform total active ingredient testing at any stage of production, as well as on samples. All conditions specified in the relevant laws and regulations are available in our laboratory.

Dimethicone Analysis

Dimethicone are silicone-based polymer materials. It is especially used in shampoos, make-up products and hair conditioners. It creates a protective cover in skin care products. Due to some concerns about safety, products that do not contain dimethicone are preferred by consumers.

Paraffin-Free Determination

The substance called paraffin is a chemical. It is obtained from petroleum and various petroleum derivatives. It is extremely widely used in the cosmetics industry. In addition, paraffin is one of the substances used in the pharmaceutical industry, textile industry and many other sectors. Its odorless and colorless structure is one of the reasons why this hydrocarbon substance is widely used. The reason why it is widely used in the cosmetics industry is that it increases the resistance of the product against water. It ensures that the products last longer on the skin surface.

In the cosmetics industry, paraffin is used to increase the resistance of products against water and to ensure that they last longer on the skin surface. However, some people prefer to avoid products that contain paraffin, due to some concerns about its safety.

Nickel Analysis

Nickel can found in cosmetics, such as eye shadow, lipstick, and nail polish.

Nickel analysis in cosmetics is used to determine the amount of nickel present in a product. This information is important for consumers who are allergic to nickel.

Nickel analysis in cosmetics is an important tool for ensuring the safety of cosmetic products. By understanding the amount of nickel present in a product, consumers can make informed choices about the products they use.
