The 7th amendment to the EU Cosmetics Directive prohibits to put animal-tested cosmetics on the market in Europe after 2013. In that context, the European Commission invited stakeholder bodies (industry, non-governmental organisations, EU Member States, and the Commission’s Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety) to identify scientific experts in five toxicological areas, i.e. toxicokinetics, repeated dose toxicity, carcinogenicity, skin sensitisation, and reproductive toxicity for which the… Expand
Safety Assessment of Cosmetic Ingredients
Conventionally, a majority of the toxicological tests used to ensure that the safety of cosmetic products is evaluated properly involve the use of animals. Since March 11, 2013, however, the 7thExpand
The use of non-animal alternatives in the safety evaluations of cosmetics ingredients by the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS).

  • Business, Medicine
  • Regulatory toxicology and pharmacology : RTP
  • 2015
TLDR
The in vitro methods reported in the dossiers submitted to the SCCS are here evaluated from the published reports issued by the scientific committee of the Directorate General of Health and Consumers (DG SANCO); responsible for the safety of cosmetics ingredients. Expand
Current EU regulatory requirements for the assessment of chemicals and cosmetic products: challenges and opportunities for introducing new approach methodologies
TLDR
Current EU regulatory requirements for the human health assessment of chemicals under REACH and the Cosmetic Products Regulation are summarized, considering the more critical endpoints and identifying the main challenges in introducing alternative methods into regulatory testing practice. Expand
Related Topic: Safety Evaluation and Alternatives to Animal Testing for Skin Toxicity
The use of animals in the testing of cosmetics and their ingredients was banned as of 11 March 2013, in accordance with the 7th Amendment to the Cosmetics Directive. In effect, any cosmetic productExpand
Safety Evaluation of Cosmetic Ingredients: In Vitro Opportunities for the Identification of Contact Allergens
TLDR
This review aims to discuss the state-of-the-art in the field of in vitro assessment of contact sensitizers and predicts that a predictive method to totally replace animal testing will be in the form of a test battery comprising molecular, cell-based, and/or computational methods, the so-called “Integrated Approaches to Testing and Assessment”. Expand
An expert consortium review of the EC-commissioned report "alternative (Non-Animal) methods for cosmetics testing: current status and future prospects - 2010".
TLDR
A group of 17 independent experts from the US, Europe, and Japan was brought together to evaluate the report and strongly endorsed the report, finding greater promise in the short term for the areas of sensitization and toxicokinetics. Expand
Consensus report on the future of animal-free systemic toxicity testing.
TLDR
A focus on data quality, combined with increased attention to the scientific background of a test method, will be important drivers in the test development process, and quantitative information on all factors and key events will be fed into systems biology models that allow a probabilistic risk assessment with flexible adaptation to exposure scenarios and individual risk factors.

Is the replacement strategy, as it exists today in the EU for cosmetics, the way forward ?
  • V. Rogiers
  • Business, Medicine
  • Archives of Toxicology
  • 2011
TLDR
Europe sticks to replacement methods only for cosmetic testing, and progress made in the practical application of tiered approaches combining in vitro and in vivo methodology, and of read across and weight of evidence strategies is ignored to a major extend. Expand
The SCCS guidance on the safety assessment of nanomaterials in cosmetics.
TLDR
The Committee shall provide opinions on questions concerning all types of health and safety risks of non-food consumer products and services and on the new or emerging problems which may pose an actual or potential threat. Expand
Continuing Animal Tests on Cosmetic Ingredients for REACH in the EU.
TLDR
The public should be made aware of REACH testing until the conflict between the regulations is resolved, and the importance to consumers and the cosmetic industry of having cosmetics free of animal testing is made aware. Expand

TLDR
This review summarises the most relevant points of the legislative texts of different types of product categories and emphasises their impact on the safety evaluation of cosmetics. Expand
A tiered approach to the use of alternatives to animal testing for the safety assessment of cosmetics: eye irritation.
TLDR
Recommendations are given on how remaining data gaps and research needs can be addressed and a decision-tree approach for their integration into tiered testing strategies for hazard and safety assessment of cosmetic ingredients and their use in products are set up. Expand
How to assess the mutagenic potential of cosmetic products without animal tests?
  • G. Speit
  • Biology, Medicine

  • 2009
TLDR
No validated alternative methods for the follow-up of positive results from the standard genotoxicity battery are available and an appropriate evaluation of the mutagenic potential of cosmetic ingredients without animal experiments is therefore not possible in many cases. Expand

TLDR
Unilever's research programme into non-animal approaches for safety assessment is currently focused on the application of new technologies to risk assessments in the areas of skin allergy, cancer and general toxicity (including inhalation toxicity). Expand
Evaluation of the skin sensitizing potency of chemicals by using the existing methods and considerations of relevance for elicitation
TLDR
The main questions answered in this report are whether it would be possible to give detailed guidance on how to grade allergen potency based on the existing methods, whether such grading could be translated into practical thresholds and whether these could be set for both induction and elicitation.
