Lowered the allowed level of homosalate

The UV filter Homosalate was included in the list of potential endocrine disruptors to be evaluated. In June 2021, the SCCS released its Final Opinion 1622/20, stating that the present limit for Homosalate as a UV filter (10% in the finished product) is not safe.

Following the SCCS Scientific Advice 1638/21 of December 2021, the European Commission published a draft of Annex VI of the Regulation (EC) 1223/2009, restricting the use of Homosalate.

According to the draft Regulation, it can only be used in face products except for propellant sprays, up to a maximum concentration of 7.34%.

So, this means that Homosalate can be used in face creams applied as creams, but not for propellant sprayed solutions.

The application deadlines are as follows:

  • 24 months after the entry into force of the draft Regulation for placing on the market;
  • 30 months after the entry into force for making available.

Microplastics – Draft of the new EU rules published.

Microplastics are intentionally added to a range of products including fertilisers, plant protection products, cosmetics, household and industrial detergents, cleaning products, paints and products used in the oil and gas industry.

In 2017, the European Commission requested ECHA to assess the scientific evidence for taking regulatory action at the EU level on microplastics, and the Commission has prepared its draft. This was published on the 30th of August 2022 and was discussed for the first time with the Member States in the REACH Committee on 23 September 2022.

Annex XVII of REACH Regulation will be amended restricting synthetic polymer microparticles, polymers that are solid and which either are contained in particles, fulfilling different conditions listed.

Also is excluding different polymers that are the result of a polymerisation process that has taken place in nature, degradable polymers, polymers with solubility greater than 2 g/L, and polymers that do not contain carbon atoms in their chemical structure, and an appendix of the amendment will lay down the rules for proving degradability of polymers, publishing different methods to ensure the compliance with the different restrictions.

Final opinion on Genistein and Daidzein

On the 23rd of September 2022, the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) published its Final Opinion on Genistein and Daidzein. A corrigendum, to correct the bioavailability oral route for daidzein was adopted on the 11th of October 2022.

From the safety assessment based on the available relevant data on the aglycone form of genistein and daidzein, and in consideration of the potential endocrine disrupting properties of phytoestrogens, the SCCS considers that:

  1. a) the use of Genistein in cosmetic products up to a maximum concentration of 0.007% is safe.
  2. b) the use of Daidzein in cosmetic products up to a maximum concentration of 0.02% is safe.

For more information, see the complete Opinion at: https://health.ec.europa.eu/system/files/2022-10/sccs_o_263.pdf 

Omnibus Act VI will be effective from the 1st of December 2023

On the 3rd of May 2022, the European Commission published the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2022/692, also known as the 18th Adaptation to Technical Progress (ATP). The law includes the substances classified as carcinogenic, mutagenic, or toxic for reproduction (CMR). Among them, there are new 30 substances that are also used as cosmetic ingredients, which will become prohibited for use in cosmetic products.

According to the Omnibus Act VI draft, substances such as Benzophenone, Cumene or Ammonium bromide will be prohibited in cosmetic products.

MICROPLASTICS – DRAFT OF THE NEW EU RULES PUBLISHED

Plastics make our lives easier in many ways and are often lighter or cost less than alternative materials. Although plastic is an important material in our everyday life, this type of waste is increasing rapidly.

If the plastic is not properly disposed of or recycled, it may end up in the environment where they stay for centuries and degrade into smaller and smaller pieces. These small pieces (typically smaller than 5mm) are called microplastics and they are of concern.

Microplastics are intentionally added to a range of products including fertilizers, plant protection products, cosmetics, household, and industrial detergents, cleaning products, paints, and products used in the oil and gas industry.

As the EU vision highlights moving towards a more sustainable plastics economy, all players in the supply chain need to play a role.

In 2017, the European Commission requested ECHA to assess the scientific evidence for taking regulatory action at the EU level on microplastics that are intentionally added to products, and in January 2019, ECHA proposed a wide-ranging restriction on microplastics in products placed on the EU/EEA market to avoid or reduce their release to the environment.

ECHA’s Committee for Risk Assessment (RAC) adopted its opinion in June 2020 and the Committee for Socio-economic Analysis (SEAC) adopted its opinion in December 2020.

The Commission has prepared its draft regulation following ECHA’s report and the committees’ combined opinion. This was published on in 30th August 2022 and was discussed for the first time with the Member States in the REACH Committee on 23 September 2022.

Annex XVII of REACH Regulation will be amended restricting synthetic polymer microparticles, polymers that are solid and which either are contained in particles and constitute at least 1 % by weight of those particles, or build a continuous surface coating on particles, where at least 1 % by weight of those particles fulfilling different conditions listed.

Also excludes different polymers that are the result of a polymerization process that has taken place in nature, which are not chemically modified substances; degradable polymers, polymers with solubility greater than 2 g/L, and polymers that do not contain carbon atoms in their chemical structure.

An appendix of the amendment lays down the rules for proving the degradability of polymers, publishing different methods to ensure compliance with the different restrictions, and shall be conducted by laboratories complying with the principles of good laboratory practice provided for in Directive 2004/10/EC or other international standards recognized as being equivalent by the Commission or the Agency or accredited to ISO 17025.

METHYL SALICYLATE – Limits of use modified

Methyl Salicylate (CAS no. 119-36-8) is a substance with different functions in cosmetics formulas, it can be used as fragrance/flavoring ingredient and soothing agent.

In May 2021, ECHA classified Methyl Salicylate as a CMR substance of category 2: suspected to be toxic for reproduction. As the ingredient is widely used, the cosmetic industry asked the European Commission to apply the exemption procedure set by Article 15(1) of the EU Cosmetics Regulation. According to it, the use of a substance classified as CMR 2 can be permitted by way of exemption if the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) evaluates the substance and finds that is safe.

As a result, on October 26-27, 2021, the SCCS issued its final opinion on Methyl Salicylate (SCCS/1633/21), stating the maximum safe concentration of the ingredient for several categories of cosmetics.

Following this SCCS opinion and analysis, the European Commission published the Omnibus Act V 15th September 2022. The new restrictions will apply as of December 17, 2022 — the exact date from which the 17th ATP will be applicable.

Restrictions of use:

  • Up to 0.06% in leave-on skin products (except face makeup, spray/aerosol body lotion, spray/aerosol deodorant, and hydroalcoholic-based fragrances) and leave-on hair products (except spray/aerosol products);
  • Up to 0.05% in face makeup (except lip products, eye makeup, and makeup remover);
  • Up to 0.002% in eye makeup and makeup remover;
  • Up to 0.009% in leave-on hair products spray/aerosol;
  • Up to 0.003% in deodorant spray/aerosol;
  • Up to 0.4% in body lotion spray/aerosol;
  • Up to 0.06% in rinse-off skin products (except hand wash) and rinse-off hair products;
  • Up to 0.6% in hand wash, hydroalcoholic-based fragrances, and mouthwash intended for children above 10 years of age and adults;
  • Up to 0.03% in lip products;
  • Up to 2.52% in toothpaste;
  • Up to 0.1% in mouthwash intended for children aged 6-10 years;
  • Up to 0.65% in mouth spray.

Furthermore, cosmetic products for children under six years cannot contain Methyl Salicylate, with the exception of toothpaste.

Deadline

Please, take into account that Omnibus Acts do not differentiate between placing on the market and making available on the market of the substances listed. Hence, as of 17th December 2022, cosmetic products cannot be placed on the market nor also being available on the shelves if they are not compliant with Omnibus Act V.

Please contact us if you need any advice about your products. The cosmeservice team is at your disposal, if you wish to get more information about this subject feel free to contact us at info@cosmeservice.com.

New draft published by the European Commission. More than 80 allergens to be declared.

New draft published by the European Commission with more than 80 substances

Yesterday, 15th September 2022, the European Commission notified the WTO of a new amendment to the Cosmetic Regulation. The publication is amending Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 of the European Parliament and the Council as regards labelling of fragrance allergens in cosmetic products.

The draft measure proposes additional fragrance allergens must be individually labelled on the package of a cosmetic product if their concentration exceeds 0,001 % in leave-on products and 0,01 % in rinse-off products. It further introduces some updates and simplifications in the names of those substances. It will be all done through amendments of Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009.

 

What are these substances?

Fragrance substances are organic compounds with characteristic, usually pleasant, odours. They are widely used in perfumes and other perfumed cosmetic products, but also in many other products such as detergents, fabric softeners and other household products.

These substances are linked to contact allergy, which is a life-long, altered specific reactivity in the human immune system. Different measures aim to protect the whole population from acquiring fragrance allergies (primary prevention) and to protect sensitised individuals from developing allergy symptoms (secondary prevention).

 

Which risk do they have? What we can do to minimise it?

In accordance with Cosmetics Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009, a cosmetic product is to be made available on the Union market only where a list of ingredients is indicated on its packaging. Furthermore, it is specified that perfume and aromatic compositions and their raw material are to be referred to by the terms ‘parfum’ or ‘aroma’ in the list of ingredients and complemented by substances the mention of which is required under the column ‘Other’ in Annex III to that Regulation.

Currently, 25 fragrance allergens listed in entries 67 to 92 of Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 are to be mentioned in the list of ingredients (individually labelled), along with the INCI name of the fragrance, “parfum” grouping the rest of substances the fragrance has.

In response to the request of the Commission for an update of the list of individually labelled fragrance allergens, the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) adopted an opinion at its plenary meeting on 26-27 June 2012, confirming the fragrance allergens listed on Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 are still relevant, but the SCCS identified 56 additional fragrance allergens, which have clearly caused allergies in humans and which have currently no requirement of individual labelling.

 

Measures adopted by the European Commission

With the aim to protect the safety of the European consumers, an obligation to individually label those new fragrance allergens will 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.

For reasons of consistency and clarity, also for completeness, certain existing entries for fragrance allergens will be updated, by aligning common names of the substances to those of the latest version of the Common Ingredients Glossary referred to in Article 33 of that Regulation, and by grouping similar substances in one entry. It is also necessary to update certain existing entries for fragrance allergens by adding isomers and by complementing and amending the respective CAS and EC numbers.

 

What has to be done now?

As the updated list of fragrance allergens is likely to result in entries in Annex III to Regulation (EC) 1223/2009 combining existing and new restrictions, economic operators should be allowed a reasonable period of time to adapt to them by making the adjustments to product formulations and containers that are necessary to ensure that only cosmetic products complying with the new requirements are placed on the market.

This gives the cosmetic companies and fragrance manufacturers a period of 3 years after the date of entry into force of this Regulation to place cosmetic products containing those substances and not complying with the restrictions on the Union market. Also, the companies and manufacturers should also be allowed a reasonable period of time to withdraw from the market cosmetic products which do not comply with the new requirements, a period of 5 years after the date of entry into force of this Regulation will be allowed.

The list of substances to be declared as allergens will grow to more than 80 individual substances, and the INCI names will be placed on the ingredient list of the cosmetic products when their concentration exceeds 0,001 % in leave-on products and 0,01 % in rinse-off products.

This draft lists 56 new entries that will be added and amended in Annex III of Regulation 1223/2009, and from now on, these substances and their derivatives must be taken into account.

If you need an exhaustive list of the substances, do not hesitate to contact us, we will be glad to help.

 

Brief summary. Dates and actions to take.

The draft of the amendment published will be open to comments 60 days from the notification and, when all comments will be revised, the European Commission will publish the amendment, presumably in the first half of 2023.

This period of time will enable the cosmetic companies and fragrance manufacturers to update the documents of the cosmetic products, along with the labelling of cosmetic products. A new allergen certificate will be needed, listing all the substances included in the amendment and their concentrations, to be able to calculate if the substances need to be declared on the ingredient list of the different cosmetic products.

The expected dates and periods are:

  • The draft is open to comments during the next 60 days.
  • The European Commission will publish the amendment first quarter of 2023.
  • The amendment will come into force 20 days after its publication in the Official Journey of the European Commission.
  • 3-year period to be able to place into the EU market cosmetic products not in compliance with the published regulation. This will allow companies to revise the documents and labels of their products.
  • 5-year period to remove from the shelves of the EU market cosmetic products not in compliance with the published regulation. This will allow companies to get rid of the stock and place revised products.

Alert – Lilial recall in the EU market.

On 3rd November 2021, the European Commission published the Omnibus IV. This amendment, the Regulation (EU) 2021/1902 included in Annex II to the EU Cosmetics Regulation those substances that have been classified as CMR in the latest amendment of the CLP Regulation, dated 19th May 2020.

The ban applies from the 1st of March 2022 and, as you probably know, cosmetics containing Butylphenyl Methylpropional (Lilial) must not be present in cosmetic products.

Please, note that as of 15th March 2022, only products compliant with the ban can be placed and made available on the EU market.

Rapex has notified since the ban a huge number of products with Butylphenyl Methylpropional (Lilial) since today. We strongly suggest checking the formulas of all your products.

Warning for products containing Formaldehyde releasers modified.

On the 8th of July 2022, the European Commission published the Commission Regulation (EU) 2022/1181. This publication amends the preamble of Annex V to Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009. The modification lowers the current threshold for labelling formaldehyde from 500 to 10 ppm.

Therefore, all finished products containing substances that release formaldehyde shall be labelled with the warning “releases formaldehyde” where the total concentration of formaldehyde released in the finished product exceeds 0,001 % (10 ppm).

New limits for the UV filters Benzophenone-3 and Octocrylene.

The EU Cosmetics Regulation was amended on the 7th of July 2022, amending Annex VI, the list of UV filters allowed in cosmetics. Octocrylene and Benzophenone-3 use limits have been modified.

The new regulation entered into force on 28th July 2022. Cosmetic products containing Benzophenone-3 and Octocrylene in concentrations that comply with the old restrictions can still be placed on the EU market until 23rd January 2023. The products have six months to reach the EU market, until 28th July 2023.

From 28th July 2023, non-compliant products must be withdrawn from the market.

Definition of nanomaterial

On June 10, 2022, The European Commission adopted a new recommendation for the definition of nanomaterial.

Nanomaterial‘ means a natural, incidental, or manufactured material consisting of solid particles that are present, either on their own or as identifiable constituent particles in aggregates or agglomerates, and where 50 % or more of these particles in the number-based size distribution fulfill at least one of the conditions that we further explain in the following link.

Triman + info Tri logo 

Since January 1, 2022, it has been mandatory to display the Triman logo on all recyclable products and packaging. In addition, it must be accompanied by the Info-Tri logo, which contains sorting information for the consumer.

A transition period until March 9, 2023, has been granted for products produced before September 9, 2022. Therefore, manufacturers, importers, or distributors can sell the stock of old packaging but products manufactured after September 9, 2022, must have the Triman + info-Tri Logo included on the packaging.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and our team will be happy to help you.

Last month before the deadline to include the Triman + Info-Tri logo

Last month before the deadline (September 9th) to comply with the AGEC Law by including the Triman + Info-Tri Logo on packaging sold or imported into France.

France has established new regulatory requirements concerning packaging sorting signs whose objectives are to ammonize the sorting rules and make it easier for consumers to understand how to sort their waste through French Law AGEC No. 2020-105 of February 10, 2020 concerning the fight against waste and the circular economy, and Decree No. 2021-835 of June 29, 2021 concerning consumer information on the waste separation rule for products subject to the principle of extended producer responsibility.

French Decree No. 2014-1577 made it mandatory as of January 1, 2015 to print the Triman logo on recyclable packaging sold to consumers in France. But, it only affected certain products. Since January 1, 2022, it has been mandatory to display the Triman logo on all recyclable products and packaging. In addition, it must be accompanied by the Info-Tri logo, which contains sorting information for the consumer.

A transition period until March 9, 2023 has been granted for products produced before September 9, 2022. Therefore, manufacturers, importers or distributors can sell stock of old packaging but products manufactured after September 9, 2022 must have the Triman + info-Tri Logo included on the packaging.

Composition of the Triman Logo:

triman logo

Special cases:

  1. An exemption to marking has been granted for glass beverage containers.
  2. When the largest surface area of a product, or its packaging, is less than 10 cm2 and no other document is supplied with it, then the complete marking (Triman Logo + info-Tri) may be available by other means, such as point-of-sale display or online.
  3. When the largest surface of a product, or its packaging, measures between 10 cm and 20 cm2 , the Triman logo must be displayed, but the information (sorting instructions) may be available by other means, such as point-of-sale display or online.

 

Decree No. 2014-1577 itself does not establish any sanction . However, according to the environmental legislation applicable in France (Art. L171-8 and L173-1), the responsible authorities may issue a warning. Thereafter, continued non-compliance may result in financial penalties.

Warning for products containing Formaldehyde releasers modified

Commission Regulation (EU) 2022/1181: warning for products containing Formaldehyde releasers modified.

On the 8th of July 2022, the European Commission published the Commission Regulation (EU) 2022/1181. This publication amends the preamble of Annex V to Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009. The modification lowers the current threshold for labelling formaldehyde from 500 to 10 ppm.

FORMALDEHYDE RELEASERS

Formaldehyde is forbidden by the Cosmetics Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009, is included in Annex II (List of Substances Prohibited in Cosmetic Products), and is classified as a carcinogen (category 1B) and a skin sensitiser (Category 1), according to CLP Regulation (Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008).

Some preservatives allowed in cosmetic products fulfil their function since they are Formaldehyde releasers, preserving the final cosmetic product. Substances such as DMDM hydantoin, Imidazolidinyl Urea, and Diazolidinyl Urea, commonly used in cosmetic products, are known to release formaldehyde to fulfil a preserving function in the finished product.

Formaldehyde is prohibited in cosmetic products (entry 1577 of Annex II of the Cosmetic Regulation) and cannot be intentionally added, but formaldehyde-releasing substances are permitted, they are listed on Annex V of the Cosmetics Regulation and have to be used within the restrictions given.

According to the previous regulation, these products must be labelled with the warning ‘contains formaldehyde’ when the amount of released formaldehyde was more than 0.05% in the final product, to communicate the presence of the substance and avoid allergic reactions to sensitised customers.

Recently, the SCCS concluded that the present threshold of 0.05% (500 ppm) does not sufficiently protect consumers sensitised to formaldehyde from exposure to free formaldehyde at cosmetic products, and concluded that the threshold should be reduced to 0.001% in order to protect the consumers. This threshold should apply to the final product. This SCCS opinion was adopted by the European Commission with the published Regulation to amend the preamble of Annex V (List of Preservatives Allowed in Cosmetic Products).

COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2022/1181

On July 8th, the European Commission published the Regulation (EU) 2022/1181 amending the preamble of Annex V to Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009. This amendment of the Cosmetics Regulation states the following:

“All finished products containing substances which are listed in this Annex and which release formaldehyde shall be labelled with the warning “releases formaldehyde” where the total concentration of formaldehyde released in the finished product exceeds 0,001 % (10 ppm), irrespective of whether the finished product contains one or more substances releasing formaldehyde.”

So, the formaldehyde threshold to be labelled at cosmetic products was lowered as proposed by the SCCS.

IMPORTANT DATES

The EU Commission proposed a transition period of 24 months for the products to be placed on the market and an extension of 24 months to sell the existing stock.

“However, all finished products containing substances referred to in the first subparagraph which comply with Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 as applicable on 30th July 2022 may be placed on the Union market until 31st July 2024 and be made available on the Union market until 31 July 2026.”

Any affected product must be revised and the brands must ensure that products comply with this amendment. Products in compliance with the old regulation can be placed on the market until July 2024, and these products can remain on the shelves since July 2026.

At this moment, there is currently no equivalent change planned to the UK Cosmetics Regulation, however, this regulation will be implemented in Northern Ireland, as being part of the EU.
