Abstract: Assessment of Pb, Cd, Ni and Cr was carried on soaps and detergents from Akure, Nigeria using spectrophotometry method. The mean results of the nineteen samples ranged thus: 3.78, 2.20 and 1.33 mg kg-1 of Pb, Ni and Cr, respectively. Cd was below detection limit. There was good correlation between the metals and all the samples (r = Pb (0.969), Ni (0.835) and Cr (0.806) at 95% confidence level. Although the values obtained for the trace heavy metals determined were low, there is a cause for vigilance. It is therefore advisable to monitor the environment were the soaps and detergents were obtained. If this is ensured, the end users of the samples would be safe from environmental hazard-pollution.
