Draft Commission Regulation amending Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the use of certain UV filters in cosmetic products (4 page(s), in English; 3 page(s), in English)

The draft Commission Regulation aims at amending the existing restrictions for Benzophenone-3 and Octocrylene, taking into account the latest opinions by the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) of 30-31 March 2021 on these two UV filters. In particular, lowering the current maximum concentrations for Benzophenone-3 of 6% to 2.2% when used in body products, including propellant and pump spray products, and for Octocrylene of 10% to 9% when used in propellant spray products.
