Abstract

Heavy and trace metals are certainly stirring elements which are existing with the environment. These substances go to the products by various process which we consume and use every day. In this analysis the heavy metals i.e. Cd, Pb and Hg with some trace elements, i.e. Al, Mg, Fe, Cu, Mn, As, Co, Zn, Cr and Ni were numerically assessed using atomic absorption spectrometry. The result indicates the concentration of Hg in the both synthetic and herbal shampoo was exceeded the WHO permissible limit. Aluminium value was nearly three times higher in synthetic shampoo than that of herbal shampoo. This study has revealed that the alarming amount of heavy metals and trace elements is present in most of the branded products including both of the synthetic and herbal. As a result, the continuous use of these cosmetics cause an adverse effects of heavy metal toxicity.
