Final Report of the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Expert Panel Amended Safety Assessment of Cellulose and Related Polymers as used in Cosmetics March 23 , 2009

  title={Final Report of the Cosmetic Ingredient Review Expert Panel Amended Safety Assessment of Cellulose and Related Polymers as used in Cosmetics March 23 , 2009},
  author={Wilma Fowler Bergfeld and Daniel C. Liebler and Thomas J. Slaga},
An earlier safety assessment of several cellulose polymers has been expanded to include cellulose itself and other cellulose polymers used in cosmetics. In general, these ingredients are modified cellulose polymers formed by reaction with the free hydroxyl groups in cellulose. The number of hydroxyl groups reacting, as well as the nature of the substitute group, largely determine the physical properties, particularly solubility, of the product. These ingredients are used in a wide variety of… 

Figures and Tables from this paper


Analysis of surface properties of cellulose ethers and drug release from their matrix tablets.
Design, development, physicochemical, and in vitro and in vivo evaluation of transdermal patches containing diclofenac diethylammonium salt.
The polymeric composition (PVP/EC, 1:2) was found to be the best choice for manufacturing transdermal patches of diclofenac diethylamine among the formulations studied.
Evaluation of soluble Bioadhesive Ophthalmic Drug Inserts (BODI) for prolonged release of gentamicin: lachrymal pharmacokinetics and ocular tolerance.
A relation between t(eff) and irritation score was established, emphasizing the importance of irritability as a factor during the evaluation of the potential of these systems.
Corneal toxicity studies in rabbits and dogs with hydroxyethyl cellulose and benzalkonium chloride.
Preparation and phase II clinical examination of topical dosage form for treatment of carcinoma coli containing bleomycin with hydroxypropyl cellulose.
A new topical disk-like dosage form for carcinoma colli was prepared by direct compression of the mixture of bleomycin hydrochloride (BLM) and combination of hydroxypropyl cellulose (HPC) and other water soluble polymer, and the amount of BLM released from the preparation increased remarkably and the water absorbing property increased with an increase in concentration of HPC.
Development of oral controlled release preparations, a PVA swelling controlled release system (SCRS). I. Design Of SCRS and its release controlling factor.

Evaluation of the physical stability of SLN and NLC before and after incorporation into hydrogel formulations.
Influence of pH and plasticizers on drug release from ethylcellulose pseudolatex coated pellets.
Correlation of the dissolution results with properties of free films indicated that slower release is associated with softer and weaker films with greater elongation, and the media pH was found to influence the dissolution characteristics of the coatings.
