The European Commission has issued an amendment to the Regulation on cosmetic products (1223/2009) having considered opinions published by the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS).

The amendment, published as Commission Regulation 1197/2013, specifically addresses the issues of the maximum allowable concentrations of certain substances in hair dyes, and also states that certain substances currently considered as safe for hair applications are also safe for use on eyelashes.

Many of these substances are allergens for a small percentage of the European population, and labels warning that products contain allergens must be used.
