Additional information

Skin Irritation: The primary irritation index of 2.2, categorizes the material as "moderately irritant". However the substance has not been classified in terms of the Dangerous Substance Directive (DSD) or the Globally Harmonised System (GHS).

Eye Irritation: The Eye irritation was assessed by the method prescibed by the Food and Drug Administration of the U.S.A. in the Federal Register, 17 September, 1964.

In Lanolin acids there were no signs of irritation to the iris, however the cornea and conjuctiva both produced very mild signs of irritation, however these values are not significant and are not enough to classify the material as an eye irritant according to the Dangerous Substances Directive (DSD).

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on skin and eye irritation/corrosion of the test substance do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 and according to Directive 67/548/EEC, and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification.
