RIFM Releases Data on Macrocyclic Materials

December 22, 2011

Fragrance components do not pose risk, says report.

Dr. Daniel T. Salvito, vice president, Environmental Science, at the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials, Inc. (RIFM), introduced the publication of an ecological risk assessment for macrocyclic fragrance materials using a chemicals categories approach. At current volumes of use, these materials do not pose a risk to the environment.

Macrocyclic fragrance materials are widely used in cosmetics, detergents, fabric softeners, cleaning products and other household and personal care products. RIFM also has companion human health papers on these materials currently in press in Food and Chemical Toxicology.

The article, Macrocyclic fragrance materials—A screening-level environmental assessment using chemical categorization—a highly collaborative effort between RIFM staff, RIFM’s Environmental Adjunct Group and industry colleagues, was published by Elsevier in the journal Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety Volume 74 Issue 6 (September 2011) 1619-1629. The full peer-reviewed article is available from the Publications or The RIFM Environmental Program sections of RIFM’s web site at www.rifm.org.
