Conclusion of the opinion:

The SCCS considers Ethyl lauroyl arginate HCl safe for use as a preservative, when used up to a maximum concentration of 0.15% in mouthwashes, though not in oral cosmetic products as a whole. As no human data concerning local toxicity of Ethyl lauroyl arginate HCl in toothpaste are available, the safety of Ethyl lauroyl arginate HCl in toothpaste cannot be assessed.
