The ingredient butylphenyl methylpropional – better known as Lilal – is a synthetic fragrance that has been popularly used in cosmetics and hair flossing products to date. This is now a thing of the past, because what has been suspected for some time has now been passed into law. Lilial may no longer be used as an ingredient (INCI), as it can possibly damage the genetic material – but contact with the skin can also cause an allergic reaction with partial inflammation.
Butylphenyl Methylpropional Prohibition
As a result, butylphenyl methylpropional (Lilal) will be included in the Regulation (EU) 2021/1902 banned in the Official Journal of the European Union of October 29, 2021 “as carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic for reproduction. It can thus impair fertility or potentially harm the child in the womb.” The ban will apply in cosmetic products from March 1, 2022. More specifically, this means that cosmetic products containing Lilial will no longer be allowed on the Union market from March 1, 2022.
