Abstract
A simple and direct method based on hollow fibresupported

liquid membrane (HFSLM) extraction

and liquid chromatography equipped with a UV

detector was developed for analysis and quantification

of parabens in cosmetic products. The parabens

analysed included methyl, ethyl, propyl,

isobutyl and butyl paraben. The HFSLM extraction

was carried out by employing di-n-hexyl ether as

organic liquid that was immobilized in the hollow

fibre membrane. The HFSLM extraction is simple,

cheap, minimizes the use of solvents and uses disposable

material. In an investigation of 11 paraben-

containing cosmetic products, the levels of

A simple and direct method based on hollow fibresupported

liquid membrane (HFSLM) extraction

and liquid chromatography equipped with a UV

detector was developed for analysis and quantification

of parabens in cosmetic products. The parabens

analysed included methyl, ethyl, propyl,

isobutyl and butyl paraben. The HFSLM extraction

was carried out by employing di-n-hexyl ether as

organic liquid that was immobilized in the hollow

fibre membrane. The HFSLM extraction is simple,

cheap, minimizes the use of solvents and uses disposable

material. In an investigation of 11 paraben-

containing cosmetic products, the levels of

parabens (sum of all parabens in a product) ranged

from 0.43% to 0.79% (w/w) for skin care

products, 0.07–0.44% for hair fixing gels and

0.30–0.52% for soap solutions. The levels of individual

parabens in individual cosmetic products

ranged between 0.03% and 0.42% w/w for skin

care products, 0.07% and 0.26% w/w for hair fixing

gels and between 0.11% and 0.34% w/w for

soap solutions. Parabens were found in the highest

concentrations in skin care products followed by

soap solutions and the least amounts were found

in hair fixing gels. Of the paraben-containing products

tested, all of them contained methyl paraben

and about 90% contained propyl paraben in addition

to methyl paraben. One product contained all

the parabens analysed. (Less)
