VOC reactivity program for antiperspirants/deodorants under consideration by California.

This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

CALIFORNIA "CLEAR" REACTIVITY VOC STANDARDS UNDER CONSIDERATION by the California Air Resource Board as an alternative volatile organic compound (VOC) reduction program for antiperspirants and deodorants. Currently, personal care companies are required to limit VOC emissions by weight and not by measurement of chemical reactivity. California's antiperspirant/deodorant VOC reg, slated to take effect Jan. 1, 1999, establishes a high volatile organic compound (HVOC) limit of 0% for aerosol products and a medium volatile organic compound limit (MVOC) not to exceed 10% by weight. Under the rule, antiperspirants and deodorants containing ethanol or fragrances or having a low vapor pressure (LVP) of 2 mmHg or less at 20C are exempt from the MVOC standard.
