Additional information

Skin irritation

One key study is available investigating the skin irritating potential of Decyl glucoside in 1 female and 2 male rabbits according to OECD guideline 404 (BASF, 1982). No skin reactions were observed during the 8-day observation period. Based on these results, the test substance may not be considered to be a skin irritant.

Eye irritation

One reliable study on the eye irritating potential of Decyl glucoside according to OECD guideline 405 exists, in which the undiluted test material was placed into the respective eye of 1 male and 2 female rabbits (BASF, 1982). The other eye remained untreated and served as control. The eyes were examined and scored 1, 24, 48 and 72 h after application. Test substance instillation into the rabbit eye induced iridial, corneal and conjunctival effects. These effects were not reversible in most of the animals within a 15-day observation period. Based on these results, the test substance may be considered to cause serious damage to the eye.

Effects on eye irritation: corrosive

Justification for classification or non-classification

The available data on skin irritation of Reaction products of D-Glucose, n-Butanol and C10-12 (even numbered) alcohols do not meet the criteria for classification according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 or Directive 67/548/EEC, and are therefore conclusive but not sufficient for classification. The available data on eye irritation of Reaction products of D-Glucose, n-Butanol and C10-12 (even numbered) alcohols meet the criteria for classification as Eye Dam. 1 (H318) according to Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 and Xi (R41) according to Directive 67/548/EEC.
