SAFEGUARDS | Cosmetics, Personal Care & Household NO. 126/17

The European Commission has published the Regulation (EU) 2017/1410 to ban the use of three fragrance allergens, HICC (CAS NO. 51414-25-6/ 31906-04-4), atranol (CAS NO. 526-37-4) and chloroatranol (CAS NO. 57074-21-2).

Currently, HICC is regulated in entry 79 under Annex III to Regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009. When its presence exceeds 0.001% in leave-on products, and 0.01% in rinse-off products, it must be declared in the list of ingredients. Atranol and Chloroatranol are natural components of oak tree moss and treemoss extracts, they are neither restricted nor prohibited under current regulation. European Commission considered the adopted SCCS opinion SCCS/1459/11 on 26-27 June 2012 where concludes these fragrance allergens causing the highest number of contact allergies cases in the past years, and European Commission now update the regulation to prohibit the use of these three fragrance allergens.
