New RIFM study available online.
The Expert Panel is of the opinion that there are no safety concerns regarding unsaturated branched chain alcohols under the present declared levels of use and exposure. These alcohols are used in decorative cosmetics, fine fragrances, shampoos and soaps as well in household cleaners and detergents.
All available data suggest that there is no indication for phototoxicity, acute toxicity, systemic toxicity (after repeated application), developmental toxicity, genotoxicity or carcinogenicity. The panel authored this assessment of unsaturated branched chain alcohols when used as fragrance ingredients.
