On request from: European Commission
SCCS Number: SCCS/1570/15
Adopted on: 15 December 2015
Conclusion of the opinion:
SCCS is of the opinion that trace levels of 1,4-dioxane in cosmetic products representing a LCR ≤ 10-5 is considered safe for the consumer. Thus, a trace level of 1,4-dioxane in cosmetic products of ≤10 ppm is safe. SCCS is of the opinion that a target level of less than or equal to 10 ppm of 1,4-dioxane in finished cosmetic products should be phased in over a short transition period.
