Guiding Cosmetic Manufacturers to Ensure Regulatory Compliance and Consumer Safety


 Cosmetic manufacturers face a critical challenge related to the "Apparent Total Nitrosamine Content" in their products. These chemical compounds can form when specific cosmetic ingredients, such as Triethanolamine (Trolamine) used as a pH buffer and nitrites, interact to form NDELA. Nitrosamines are known carcinogens, presenting substantial health risks.

Cosmetic NDELA



Nitrosamines can become part of cosmetics, potentially entering the consumer's body through inhalation, ingestion, or skin absorption. Long-term exposure to nitrosamines may elevate the risk of various cancers, including bladder, kidney, stomach, and liver cancer. Furthermore, nitrosamines are associated with other health concerns, including reproductive and developmental toxicity.


To meet stringent regulatory requirements and ensure consumer safety, manufacturers must proactively mitigate nitrosamine formation in their products. Compliance with Cosmetic Regulation EC 1223/2009 is essential.
