COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2023/1545 of 26 July 2023 amending Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards labelling of fragrance allergens in cosmetic products
All fragrance allergens as amended and published 27th July 2023.
“In light of the SCCS opinion, it can be concluded that there is a potential risk to human health arising from the use of the additional fragrance allergens identified by the SCCS and that it is necessary to inform consumers about the presence of those fragrance allergens. Therefore, an obligation to individually label those fragrance allergens should be introduced in Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 when their concentration exceeds 0,001 % in leave-on products and 0,01 % in rinse-off products. Furthermore, fragrance substances, such as prehaptens and prohaptens, that can be transformed to known contact allergens via air oxidation or bioactivation should be treated as equivalent to fragrance allergens and be subject to the same restrictions and other regulatory requirements.”
(*) Cosmetic products containing that substance that do not comply with the restrictions may be placed on the Union market until 31 July 2026 and made available on the Union market until 31 July 2028.
(**) Cosmetic products containing that substance that do not comply with the restrictions may, provided that they comply with the restrictions applicable on 15 August 2023, be placed on the Union market until 31 July 2026 and made available on the Union market until 31 July 2028.
