ABSTRACT

This study was designed to detect heavy metals in some moisturizers marketed in Khartoum(Sudan) for beautification purposes. A total of four cosmetic samples marketed under different commercial names and extensively used by Sudanese women for beautification purposes were analyzed by inductively coupled plasma/optical emission spectroscopy (ICP/OES). The analysis revealed absence of the potentially harmful mercury, lead, nickel and cadmium in test samples. However it showed that common heavy meals in test samples are: zinc and calcium. whereas iron is common in samples 1, 2 and 3. Samples 1 and 3 contained barium, while samples 2 and 3 contained manganese. Aluminium appeared only in sample 3.
