Laboratory analysis of heavy metals in make-up

You want to analyse heavy metals in your make-up products

Why analyse heavy metals in make-up?

First of all, heavy metals are not present as ingredients in make-up formulations, but may appear as impurities, mostly from raw materials or manufacturing processes.

In France, some heavy metals are prohibited; for others, the presence of very small quantities or traces may be tolerated provided there is no health risk. Indeed, heavy metals are highly toxic to the human body.

Consequently, the support of a laboratory competent in the analysis of heavy metals is indispensable in the context of quality control or the marketing of make-up.
