Monitoring levels of preservative sensitivity in Europe

Monitoring levels of preservative sensitivity in Europe A 10‐year multicentre analysis of the frequency of sensitivity to common preservatives collected in 16 centres in 11 countries has shown stable but persisting high levels of sensitivity to formaldehyde and 5‐chloro‐2‐methyl‐4‐isothiazolin‐3‐one + 2‐methyl‐4‐isothiazolin‐3‐one (MCI/MI). It has also revealed a significant increase in the level of reactivity to methyldibromoglutaronitrile (MDBGN) from 0.7% in 1991 to 3.5% in 2000. The current high level of sensitivity to MDBGN requires an urgent safety re‐evaluation and risk assessment update along with consideration of immediate lowering of use concentrations, especially in leave‐on products. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Contact Dermatitis Wiley

Abstract

A 10‐year multicentre analysis of the frequency of sensitivity to common preservatives collected in 16 centres in 11 countries has shown stable but persisting high levels of sensitivity to formaldehyde and 5‐chloro‐2‐methyl‐4‐isothiazolin‐3‐one + 2‐methyl‐4‐isothiazolin‐3‐one (MCI/MI). It has also revealed a significant increase in the level of reactivity to methyldibromoglutaronitrile (MDBGN) from 0.7% in 1991 to 3.5% in 2000. The current high level of sensitivity to MDBGN requires an urgent safety re‐evaluation and risk assessment update along with consideration of immediate lowering of use concentrations, especially in leave‐on products.
