The phototoxic potential of hexylcinnamaldehyde is investigated in two studies.Guinea pig = phototoxic at 3% and 10% alcoholic preparation with a skin penetration enhancerHuman volunteers = Non phototoxic at 10% alcoholic preparation.
Both studies are similar in their reliability, but the animal study
used in addition a skin penetration enhancer. It is considered that the
human data should take precedence in this case over the animal data and
therefore conclude that hexylcinnamaldehyde does not have phototoxicity
potential in humans.
