CIR Publishes Safety Assessment Compendium

December 9, 2005

The Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) published its 2005 CIR Compendium, which contains concise information on more than 1,200 safety assessments of individual cosmetic ingredients. It identifies 694 ingredients found safe for use in cosmetic formulations, 388 ingredients that can be used safely if qualifications are heeded, 131 ingredients for which the available data are insufficient to support safety and nine ingredients considered unsafe for use in cosmetics. A quick reference table is also included that allows the reader to access basic information in a tabular format.
“The CIR Compendium is a must for dermatologists, chemists, toxicologists and industry and consumer safety groups,” commented Wilma Bergfeld, M.D., chair of CIR’s expert panel and head of clinical research and dermatopathology at the Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Dermatology.
