Determination of sulphates in cosmetic products

Are you looking to measure the sulfates present in your cosmetic products?

Sulfates are often present in the cosmetic industry (shower gel, shampoos, body care products…). Indeed, sulfates are used as surfactants in cosmetic products, that is to say that sulfates can disperse a fat in water.

However, the use of sulfates in cosmetic products is highly regulated because they are known to be irritating substances for some users. Only certain sulfates such as sodium lauryl sulfate or ammonium lauryl sulfate can be used and at specific concentrations.
