A method guide for selenium analysis in shampoo from Thermo Fisher
The method, in accordance with EU commission regulation, features the ThermoScientific iCE 3000 Series atomic absorption spectrometers. The method identifies selenium disulphide through a reactionary color change and quantifies selenium through flame atomic absorption spectrometry. Selenium disulphide, contained in various lotions and shampoos, can prevent dandruff (pityriasis capitis) and seborrheic dermatitis. Residual selenium disulphide after rinsing may enter the human body through broken or damaged skin. Selenium is considered to be a potential carcinogen.
