The European Commission’s Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) has recently published four opinions relating to cosmetic and hair dye products. The products, and the opinions on them, are as follows:

  • Zinc pyrithione which can now be used at concentrations of up to 2.0% in hair products (previously 1.0%)
  • 3-amino-2,6-dimethylphenol which is considered safe for use in oxidative hair dye formulations with an on-head concentration of maximum 2.0%
  • Hydroxyethoxy aminopyrazolopyridine HCl which is considered safe for use in oxidative hair dye formulations with an on-head concentration of maximum 2.0%
  • Basic Brown 17 (8-[(4- Amino-3-nitrophenyl)azo]-7-hydroxy-N,N,N-trimethyl-2-naphthalenaminium chloride) which is considered safe for use in oxidative hair dye formulations with an on-head concentration of maximum 2.0%.
