Cosmetics Europe, a European cosmetics trade association, has issued an industry-wide recommendation to discontinue use of the preservative methylisothiazolinone—also known as MI or MIT—in leave-on skin cosmetics and personal-care products. Noting that the action is made in the interests of consumer health and in response to recent clinical data that purportedly show an increase in adverse skin reactions to the ingredient, the association concluded that the discontinuation of MIT use in leave-on skin products including cosmetic wet wipes would result in “a significant decrease” in the incidence of sensitization to this ingredient. Cosmetics Europe suggests that industry “does not await regulatory intervention under the Cosmetics Regulation, but that it takes voluntary action in implementing this change as soon as feasible.” See Cosmetics Europe News Release, December 12, 2013.
