Analysis of NDELA according to ISO 15819

Actors of the cosmetic field, you wish to analyse the NDELA in your products according to ISO 15819

What is ISO 15819?

ISO 10130 describes the method for the detection and quantification of N-nitrosodiethanolamine (NDELA) in cosmetics and raw materials used in cosmetics.

NDELA (N-nitrosodiethanolamine) is a molecule of the nitrosamine family. Nitrosamines, which are essentially composed of nitrogen and oxygen, are found in various fields, including cosmetics.

Why analyse the NDELA of your cosmetic products according to ISO 15819?

First of all, cosmetics containing NDELA are prohibited by the Cosmetics Directive. Furthermore, a limit of 50 μg/kg has been set for nitrosamines.

Indeed, if the limit is exceeded, cosmetic products present risks for human health. 

Therefore, the support of a laboratory specialised in the analysis of nitrosamines, in particular NDELA, is a considerable asset in the optimisation of your cosmetic products.
