The European Commission (EC) Standing Committee on Cosmetic Products has favored the proposed amendments to Regulation 12232009 for Cosmetic Products.

Specifically, the amendments are:

  • Amend the entry for zinc oxide under Annex IV of the cosmetic products Regulation, which lists all approved colorants.
  • Amend the permitted concentration of the preservative methylisothiazolinone (MIT) in rinse-off cosmetics to 15ppm in Annex V

The amendments will be enforced after 20 days after publication in the EU’s Official Journal.
