Resumen

RATH, Susanne  y  CANAES, Larissa S.. Contamination of cosmetics and personal care products by n-nitrosamines. Quím. Nova [online]. 2009, vol.32, n.8, pp. 2159-2168. ISSN 0100-4042.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-40422009000800030.

N-nitrosamines are carcinogenic compounds that have been found during the last three decades in a variety of consumer products, including cosmetic and personal care products, and their raw materials. These compounds are formed from amine precursors and nitrosating agents present in the formulations. This paper reviews the formation and occurrence of N-nitrosamines in cosmetic products, as well as presents considerations about analytical, toxicological and regulatory aspects.

Palabras llave : N-nitrosamines; cosmetic products; analytical methods.
