Executive summary:

Acute dermal toxicity study of Terpineol multi (a multi-constituent substance with alpha-Terpineol as its main constituent and gamma-Terpineol as the minor constituent) as a limit test was conducted according to OECD guideline 402 and in compliance with GLP. To groups of 5 Sprague-Dawley rats/sex were used: one control group exposed to distilled water and one test group. The test substance was applied to the skin by topical application for 24 h, under semi-occlusive conditions, at 2000 mg/kg bw, with a volume of 2.13 mL/kg bw. After exposure, exposure area was washed with distilled water. Animals were observed every day for systemic clinical signs and mortalities for 14 days. The animals were weighed on D0, D2, D7 and D14. Necropsies were done on D14 for macroscopic observations. No toxic effects were observed, this results in an LD50 > 2000 mg/kg bw.
