The current study deals with hazards and safety precautions of some pharmaceutical and cosmetic creams used extensively in Iraq. UV absorption - related diseases of these products and people unawareness of side effects and the weak quality control are other reasons for conducting such study. Spectral study of fourteen pharmaceuticals and cosmetics was carried out within a wavelength range of (200 – 700)nm. The maximum absorption percentage of UV region was 5% for Tetraderm and and 3.66% for Nivea cream.
