Methanol Test


Protheragen-ING is dedicated to the meticulous assessment of methanol levels within cosmetics. Its primary goal is to guarantee the safety and excellence of cosmetic products. This ensures consumer protection by averting potential health risks and assuring compliance with regulatory requirements across various countries and regions.

In today's vast cosmetic market, a wide range of products, from everyday skincare essentials like lotions and toners to cosmetic staples such as foundations and eyeliners, commonly contain alcohol as a solvent.

This extends to both classic fragrances such as perfumes and modern hairstyling products such as hair gel and mousse. It should be noted that if manufacturers employ substandard alcohol as a raw material, the risk of contamination with methanol becomes a concern.

Methanol - A Hidden Hazard

Methanol, a toxic substance, has detrimental effects on the human nervous and circulatory systems. Ingestion of methanol through the digestive or respiratory tract, or even skin contact, can trigger severe toxic reactions.

Exposure to methanol vapor can damage the respiratory mucosa and impair vision. Symptoms of acute methanol poisoning range from headaches, nausea, and stomach pain to fatigue, blurred vision, and, in severe cases, irreversible blindness. These symptoms may progress to breathing difficulties, potentially leading to respiratory center paralysis, a life-threatening condition.
