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 scope to assess the efficacy of cosmetic ingredients. TBC We strongly believe that new restrictions will be set out according to the above SCCS opinion. SCCS Final Opinion 1622/20 SCCS
