The European Commission (EC) has released a draft amendment to the cosmetics Regulation, specifically proposing the permission of use of several hair dye substances for coloring eyelashes, namely:
- 2- methylresorcinol
- tetraaminopyrimidine sulfate
- hydroxyethyl-p-phenylenediamine sulfate
The Commission has noted that these dyes should only be permitted for professional use, with proper warnings on their labels.
The draft was released on October 7, 2016.
