Abstract

DETERMINATION OF HEAVY METALS (ARSENIC, CADMIUM AND LEAD) FROM DIFFERENT BODY LOTIONS

*Dr. Patil Anita Parashram

ABSTRACT

In this work we analysed some mostly used body lotion available in market. The samples are collected of different types. Here the deviation is observed in amount of metals present in product (body lotions). In this study we found that some body lotion contain high amount of heavy metals beyond WHO limit. The cosmetics were analysed for heavy metals (Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead) after digestion with aquaregia solution. The concentration of the selected toxic heavy metals was determined in duplicate using atomic absorption spectrophotometer. The samples analysed for amount of the metals of interest. The concentration of the heavy metals in the samples ranged from 0.046 to 18.46 ppm. It is obvious from the present study that the use of some cosmetic products expose users to low concentrations of toxic heavy metals which could constitute potential health risk to users, since it has known that heavy metals can accumulate in the biological system over time and are known to induce skin problem or diseases such as cancer. Further research to better understand the sources of heavy metals in cosmetic product is recommended. It has been shown that heavy metals toxicity to humans is as a result of long term or high level exposure to pollutants common in the environment including the air, water food and numerous consumer products such as the cosmetics and toiletries. In this study we assessed the levels of toxic metals in different cosmetics product sold at local shops in Nashik.

Keywords: heavy metals, toxicity, body lotions, pollutants.
