Description of key information

Additional information

In a manometric-respiratory test performed with oxybenzone, 62% biodegradation was observed within 28 days, but the 10day-window was failed. Thus, the substance cannot be considered as readily biodegradable, but as (inherently) biodegradable. Persistence in the environment is therefore not assumed.

Further data on biodegradation are not available and not necessary.
