GALAB Allergenic Fragrance Screening 50+

GALAB Allergenic Fragrance Screening 50+


The modification of Regulation 1223/2009 on cosmetic products requires the explicit
declaration of allergenic fragrances when present in a cosmetic product at specified
levels. This extension covers 61 distinct substances and over 30 different plant extract
products. All listed compounds have been identified as having potential skin-irritating
and/or sensitizing properties. Consequently, it is advisable to reduce the use of these
substances in products intended for skin contact.

In the sensitive area of hygiene products such as baby diapers or menstrual products,
the presence of allergenic substances is generally considered to be technically avoida-
ble and should be reduced to a technically unavoidable level.

GALAB Laboratories employs cutting-edge analytical technology, specifically LC-MS/
MS and GC-MS/MS, facilitating the comprehensive detection of all components and
potential skin-sensitizing/irritating fragrances through a multi-method approach. This
sophisticated methodology ensures the exclusion of any presence of potential allerge-
nic natural plant extracts.

Our analytical services in the cosmetic product area include facilitating the declara-
tion of allergenic fragrances in accordance with the specifications set out in Annex III
of Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009, with levels set at 10 mg/kg for leave-on products and
100 mg/kg for rinse-off products. In addition, our analysis includes compliance with the
limitations and bans outlined in Annex II of Regulation (EC) No. 1223/2009 regarding
specific fragrances.
