Irritant / corrosive response data:
- The test item showed a primary irritation score of 0.0 when applied to intact rabbit skin. Local signs (mean 1 hour to 72 hours) consisted of grade 0.0 erythema and grade 0.0 edema.
- In the area of application no staining of the treated skin by pigment or coloring of the test article was observed.
- No destructions or irreversible alterations of the treated skin were observed. No corrosive effect was evident on the skin.
Other effects:
- The body weight gain of all rabbits was similar.
- No acute toxic symptoms were observed in the animals during the test period, and no mortality occurred.
- Due to the results obtained, no macroscopic organ examination was indicated.

Conclusions:
Unter the conditions of this study, sodium 3(2H-benzotriazol-2-yl)-5-sec-butyl-4-hydroxybenzenesulfonate was found to cause a primary irriatation scrore of 0.0 when applied to intact rabbit skin. The test item was not irritating to rabbit`s skin.
Executive summary:

Sodium 3(2H-benzotriazol-2-yl)-5-sec-butyl-4-hydroxybenzenesulfonate was tested in a primary skin irritation study according to OECD guideline 404 and EU method B.4. The single dose of 0.5 g/animal of test item was placed on the skin of rabbits (1 male; 2 females). The test item was found to cause a primary mean irritation score of 0.0 when applied to intact rabbit skin. Local signs (mean 1 hour to 72 hours) consisted of grade 0.0 erythema and grade 0.0 edema. In the area of application, no staining of the treated skin by pigment or coloring of the test article was observed. The test item was not irritating to rabbit`s skin.
