Additional information

Petrolatums do not meet EU criteria for oxidising properties. Petrolatums and oxidized petrolatum do not have oxidizing properties, as there are no reactive functional groups represented by the constituent hydrocarbons comprising these substances. Petrolatums are not classified on the basis of oxidizing potential.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Petrolatum does not meet EU CLP (EC No. 1272/2008) criteria for oxidising properties. Petrolatums and oxidized petrolatum do not have oxidizing properties, as there are no reactive functional groups represented by the constituent hydrocarbons comprising these substances. Petrolatums are not classified on the basis of oxidizing potential.
