24-25/06/2021 No timeline applicable for now Due to the potential endocrine disrupting properties of Homosalate, the SCCS has concluded that it is not safe when used as a UV-filter in cosmetic products at concentrations of up to 10%. SCCS considered it safe up to a maximum concentration of 0.5% in finished product. The use of Homosalate at the lower concentrations may have a bearing on efficacy as UV-filter, however this is outside the SCCS remit to assess the efficacy of cosmetic ingredients.TBC We strongly believe that new restrictions will be set out according to the above SCCS opinion.
