The renamed Expert Panel for Cosmetic Ingredient Safety has its own website now, which includes the conflict of interest statement its members are expected to sign. The panel will meet virtually 8-9 June to consider a raft of ingredient reports in various stages of development at Cosmetic Ingredient Review.
CHART: At their December meeting, the Cosmetic Ingredient Review’s toxicology experts finalized four ingredient reports and issued five tentative safety assessments, plus four insufficient data announcements. The Expert Panel’s MCI/MI decision essentially upholds its 1992 stance on the preservative mixture, while highlighting its sensitization potential.
By July 16, 2015, cosmetics manufacturers will be prohibited from marketing leave-on products in Europe that contain a preservative mixture of methylchloroisothiazolinone and methylisothiazolinone under a ban the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Expert Panel anticipated with concern in recent meetings. Simultaneously, the EC announces stricter limits on propylparaben and butylparaben in personal-care items.
