Cosmetic ingredients: from the cosmetic to the human body and the environment
Guest Editors Alberto Chisvert and Amparo Salvador introduce the Cosmetic Ingredients themed issue.
Extractive electrospray ionization mass spectrometry for direct characterization of cosmetic products
This article reviews the development and application of neutral desorption extractive electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ND-EESI-MS) for the rapid analysis of cosmetic products without sample pretreatment.
Fragrances: from essential oils to the human body and atmospheric aerosols
This review focuses on different sample pre-treatment methods of scented products, biological fluids and environmental samples and the use of LC or GC-MS for analysis of fragrance allergens.
Liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry for the multi-residue analysis of organic UV filters and their transformation products in the aquatic environment
UV-absorbing compounds are environmental pollutants of recent concern and the requirements for analytical methods are mainly driven by the low concentrations found in aqueous and solid environmental samples.
Current trends in liquid–liquid and solid–liquid
extraction for cosmetic analysis: a review
In this review, current trends in solvent extraction (such as LPME, MAE, UAE, ASE and SFE) for cosmetic analysis have been discussed and compared with traditional solvent extraction procedures.
Analytical methods for the characterization and determination of
nonionic surfactants in cosmetics and environmental matrices
A historical perspective and a survey of the state of the art of analytical methodologies in the characterization and quantitation of non-ionic surfactants in cosmetics and environmental matrices are provided.
A rapid and sensitive gas chromatography-mass spectrometry method for the quality control of perfumes: simultaneous determination of phthalates
A rapid and sensitive GC-MS method for perfume analysis to determine the phthalates banned by the European Union Regulation on cosmetic samples is presented.
A solid-phase extraction liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry method for the percutaneous absorption assessment of 3-(4′-methylbenzylidene)camphor via human urine analysis
An SPE-LC-MS/MS analytical method to determine the UV filter 3-(4′-methylbenzylidene)camphor (MBC) and its main metabolite 3-(4′-carboxybenzylidene)camphor (CBC) in urine from users of sunscreen cosmetic products is presented.
cosmetic ingredients from authentic formulations and environmental samples with desorption electrospray ionization mass spectrometry
DESI-MS is used as an effective analysis alternative to rapidly screen cosmetic analytes with high sensitivity and little to no sample preparation.
Emerging pollutants in aquatic environments: monitoring of UV filters in urban wastewater treatment plants
Data dependent acquisition in MS/MS analysis was used to improve the specificity of a method for the determination of UV filters in wastewater.
Content of suspected allergens and preservatives in marketed baby and child care products
High number and concentrations of suspected allergen fragrances and preservatives have been found in marketed baby and child care products.
A novel outlook on detecting microbial contamination in
cosmetic products: analysis of biomarker volatile compounds by solid-phase microextraction gas chromatography-mass spectrometry
SPME-GC/MS methodology for the rapid screening analysis of potentially microbial-contaminated cosmetic samples in control laboratories.
Heavy metals in powder-based
cosmetics quantified by ICP-MS: an approach for estimating measurement uncertainty
A method based on microwave digestion and high resolution mass spectrometry was developed for the determination of Cd, Co, Cr, Ni and Pb in powder cosmetic samples.
Measurement of iodide and
caffeine content in cellulite reduction cosmetic products sold in the European market
Two simple liquid chromatography separation methods coupled with ultraviolet diode array and electrospray ionisation mass spectrometry detection have been developed for the determination of caffeine and iodide in cellulite reduction cosmetic products freely sold in Europe.
