Skin sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not sensitising)
Additional information:

The skin sensitization potential of the whole range of alcohol ethoxylates (AEs) was evaluated by the majority in the guinea pig maximisation test according to the Magnusson Kligman and in the non-adjuvant Buehler test protocol in guinea pigs.

In summary, all of the six studies conducted with the Cas-No. 71060-57-6, 68439-50-9, 68551-12-2, 66455-14-9, 68131-39-5 and 68439-49-6 showed that the AEs have no skin sensitizing potential. Hence, no classification is warranted. This is further supported by clinical data that demonstrate the absence of skin sensitization responses to AE when tested under the conditions of the HRIPT (HERA, 2009).
