EC Requests Scientific Opinion on Three Coatings for Titanium Dioxide (Nano) as UV-Filter in Dermally Applied Cosmetic Products

On December 17, 2015, the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) posted a request for a scientific opinion on three coatings for titanium dioxide (nano) as an ultraviolet (UV)-filter in dermally applied cosmetic products. See http://ec.europa.eu/health/scientific_committees/consumer_safety/docs/sccs_q_124.pdf According to the request, the European Commission (EC) received data from industry to assess the safety of the following coatings for titanium dioxide (nano form) used as a UV-filter in dermally applied cosmetic products: cetyl phosphate; manganese dioxide; and triethoxycaprylylsilane. The EC asks whether the SCCS considers safe the use of these materials as coatings for titanium dioxide (nano) used as UV-filter in dermally applied products and whether the SCCS has any other scientific concerns. The deadline for SCCS's opinion is June 2016.
