(3) Does the SCCS have any further scientific concerns with regard to the use of Methoxypropylamino Cyclohexenylidene Ethoxyethylcyanoacetate (S87) in cosmetic products?

S87 is a secondary amine, and thus is prone to nitrosation and formation of nitrosamines. It should not be used in combination with nitrosating substances. The nitrosamine content should be < 50 ppb.
