Introducing the science behind ATNC analysis in cosmetics

Feb 14 2024

Cosmetics play a vital role in our daily routines, but concerns about their safety have been on the rise due to the presence of nitrosamines and their potential health effects. Manufacturers are faced with the challenging task of confirming and controlling nitrosamine levels, which can be difficult with current equipment, often requiring expensive and time-consuming outsourcing.

That's where the ATNC (Apparent Total Nitrosamine Content) Analysis comes in. This innovative technique, recognised under the European Union's Cosmetics Regulation (EC) 1223/2009, allows users to quickly screen samples for total nitrosamine content down to ppb levels. It provides a single result, regardless of the complexity of the nitrosamine molecule.

Ellutia have decades of expertise in nitrosamine detection across various industries, and understand the unique challenges faced in the cosmetics industry. The company’s customised solutions empower customers to bring ATNC testing in-house, led by their exceptional 800 series TEA detector. This detector is renowned for its unmatched sensitivity and selectivity, using a chemical reaction to detach the NO group from the nitrosamine molecule, which is then precisely detected by the TEA.

Ellutia’s ATNC systems offer unmatched flexibility, allowing for manual or automated analysis depending on the required sensitivity and sample volumes. By taking the next step to internalise ATNC analysis, you can regain control and swiftly identify and resolve any issues, ensuring that your products consistently meet your expected standards. Contact Ellutia’s team of experts to arrange an exploratory call and discuss the possibilities.
