A micellar electrokinetic chromatography method using cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) as a cationic surfactant, coupled with UV-Vis detection, was developed for the simultaneous determination of seven preservatives, including methyl-, ethyl-, propyl-, and butyl-paraben and phenol, phenoxyethanol, and resorcinol. The method involved optimizing the pH of the phosphate buffer and concentrations of CTAB, ethanol, and 2-hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HP-β-CD). The preservatives were well separated using optimum conditions and separated within 10 min at a separation voltage of -12.5 kV with the 1.0 mM phosphate buffer (pH 7.0) containing 90 mM CTAB, 25 mM HP-β-CD, and 10% (v/v) ethanol. Satisfactory recoveries (84.1%-103.0%), migration time (RSD < 3.1%), and peak area (RSD < 4.5%) repeatabilities were achieved. Detection limits of the preservatives were between 0.31 and 1.52 μg mL(-1) (S/N = 3, n = 5). The optimized method was successfully applied to the simultaneous determination of these preservatives in 10 commercial cosmetic products. © 2013 Society of Cosmetic Scientists and the Société Française de Cosmétologie.
