Analysis of isothiazolinones in your cosmetic products

You need to analyse isothiazolinones in your cosmetic products

First of all, isothiazolinone is a family of biocides composed from a heterocycle, 1,2-thiazol-3-one. Isothiazolinones are used against bacteria and fungi in lacquers, paints, antifoulings and varnishes. Their biocidal effect comes from a two-step mechanism: a rapid inhibition of growth and respiration, followed by irreversible damage to the cell within hours. By reacting with the cell’s proteins, oxygen consumption, hence respiration, and ATP synthesis, hence energy production, are inhibited.

Isothiazolinone is a preservative used in cosmetic products such as shampoos and hair care products. It is permitted in Europe for all cosmetic applications, but at a maximum concentration of 15 ppm.

Therefore, the support of a laboratory competent in the analysis of preservatives in cosmetics is essential to be able to perform the analysis of isothiazolinone in your cosmetic products.
