How Are Endocrine Disruptors Regulated by EU Cosmetics Regulation?

Endocrine disruptors are chemical substances that alter the functioning of the endocrine system and negatively affect the health of humans and animals. Under EU Cosmetics Regulation, suspected endocrine disruptors will be banned or restricted on a case-by-case basis following their safety assessment result by Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS). In early 2019, a priority list of 28 potential endocrine disruptors in cosmetics was compiled, among which the SCCS released opinions for 12 so far.

Endocrine disruptors (EDs), which may either be of synthetic or natural origin, are chemical substances that alter the functioning of the endocrine system, and consequently produce adverse effects upon the health of humans and animals. Compared to other toxicological chemicals, the property of EDs make us also pay attention to the mechanism how they interfere with the functioning of the hormonal system, in addition to the toxic effect they bring about. Various sources may cause exposures to EDs, one of which is the consumer products used or exist in our daily life, including cosmetics.
