Important: Sodium Fluoride and Acetyl Hexamethyl Tetralin - Call for Interest

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has listed a new entry within its Registry of Intentions with proposed Carcinogenic, Mutagenic and Reprotoxic (CMR) classifications.  According to Article 15 of the UK and EU Cosmetics Regulations, if a cosmetic ingredient receives a CMR classification, specific safety information must be submitted to, and reviewed by, the authorities to allow the ingredient to continue being used.  The objective of this ingredient defence is to secure an Annex III entry for sodium chlorite within the Cosmetics Regulation if it receives the below-proposed CMR classification.

On 3 April 2024, the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) published Germany’s intention of a harmonised classification and labelling (CLH) for Acetyl Hexamethyl Tetralin, and France’s intention for Sodium Fluoride. Please find the details below and a request for you to complete a usage check.

  • SODIUM FLUORIDE (EC 231-667-8, CAS 7681-49-4).
    • Proposed CMR reprotox (no category yet), ED Human Health (no category yet) – France
    • Expected submission date 30 November 2024
