Citing an increased incidence of skin allergies, the European Commission (EC) has proposed restricting the maximum amount of methylisothiazolinone (MI) in rinse-off cosmetic products from 100 ppm (parts per million) to 15 ppm. The proposal would also mandate “contains methylisothiazolinone” labeling. MI is a common preservative found in products that include soaps, deodorants, moist wipes and shower gels. The EC is seeking stakeholder feedback about various impacts of the restriction and will accept comments until July 1, 2016. See EC Press Release, April 1, 2016.
