The European Commission (EC) Standing Committee on Cosmetic Products has favored the proposed amendments to Regulation 1223⁄2009 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.
