Press release from: SGS

/ PR Agency: Sugarloaf Marketing
Health Canada is seeking comments on its plans to revise the Cosmetic Ingredient Hotlist. Stakeholders have until July 1, 2019, to submit responses.

The Cosmetic Ingredient Hotlist contains substances that, if used in cosmetics, may violate the general prohibition found in section 16 of the Food and Drugs Act and/or requirements in the Cosmetic Regulations. It therefore acts as a way to prohibit certain substances from being in cosmetics. It was last updated in September 2018.

The proposed changes include revisions to existing entries and the addition of new substances that will be restricted and/or prohibited.

Changes include:
• Dihydrocoumarin (CAS 119-84-6) removed from the prohibited substance list but restricted to:
o Leave-on – maximum 0.035%
o Rinse-off – maximum 3.5%
• Disulfiram, Thiuram, Thiuram disulfides, and Thiuram monosulfides combined as Thiurams (CAS 97-77-8; 137-26-8) – maximum 14% in latex products
• Eucalyptus oil (CAS 8000-48-4) – products containing it must carry warnings – “This product contains eucalyptus oil which is poisonous.", "Keep out of reach of children", and "If swallowed, call a Poison Control Center or doctor immediately.”
• Sodium bromate (CAS 7789-38-0) now prohibited with all Bromates
• Thioglycolic acid (CAS 68-11-1) and its salts revised as follows:
o Eyelash curling products – 11% with a pH of 7 to 9.5 plus warnings – “"For professional use only.", "Avoid direct skin contact, wear suitable gloves.", "Avoid contact with eyes and, in the event of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical attention."
o Hair dyes, waving or straightening products – 8% with a pH of 7 to 9.5 plus warnings – "Avoid direct skin contact, wear suitable gloves.", "Not for use in the area of the eye."
o Hair dyes, waving and straightening products (professional use) 11% with a pH of 7 to 9.5 plus warnings – "For professional use only.", "Avoid direct skin contact, wear suitable gloves.", "Not for use in the area of the eye."
o Depilatory products – 5% with a pH of 7 to 12.7 plus warnings – “Avoid contact with eyes and, in the event of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical attention."

The proposals would also make minor changes to synonyms and CAS numbers.

Health Canada also reminds stakeholders that cosmetic products should cease to be sold as soon as they are known to cause injury.
