                         preventing damage caused by sun exposition. Therefore, this paper 
                         proposes the development of a simple, fast and reliable 
                         electroanalytical method utilizing square wave voltammetry (SWV) 
                         to the determination of Benzophenone-3 (BZ-3), camphor 
                         4-methylbenzylidene (MBC) and 2-ethylhexyl-4-methoxycinnamate 
                         (OMC) in cosmetic samples. The electrochemical system consisted of 
                         a cell with three electrodes: work - gold electrode modified, 
                         reference - Ag/AgCl(sat) and auxiliary - platinum, using as 
                         supporting electrolyte 4.0 mL of Britton Robinson Buffer 0.04 mol 
                         L-1 (pH=4.0), 1.0 mL of methanol and 5.50x10(-4) mol L-1 of 
                         cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB). The method was validated 
                         using three commercial sunscreen samples and the results showed 
                         recovery values between 83 and 98 %. The average values found for 
                         the analysed samples were 3.49 % m/m (728 mg L-1) to BZ-3, 0.56 % 
                         m/m (113 mg L-1) to MBC and 0.99 % m/m (208 mg L-1) to OMC. The 
                         detection (DL) and quantification (QL) limits were 0.47 mg L-1 and 
                         1.56 mg L-1 to BZ-3, 0.77 mg L-1 and 2.58 mg L-1 to MBC and 0.78 
                         mg L-1 and 2.59 mg L-1 to OMC, respectively. The sunscreen 
                         protector samples were also evaluated by high-performance liquid 
                         chromatography (HPLC) demonstrating a good correlation between the 
                         results and compared the results with allowed concentration.",
