According to the EU regulation 1223/2009, perfume allergens must be declared on the label when they are present in concentrations exceeding 0.001% in leave-on products or exceeding 0.01% in rinse-off products. There are currently 26 allergens that are regulated, but there are plans to add around 56 more substances to the regulation’s scope. However the time frame for this change has not yet been announced.
Auto determining Allergen Labelling requirements
RUBYF&F auto determines the allergen labelling requirements based on the concentrations of regulated materials added directly to the formula and also those added indirectly via natural complex substances such as Oils, Absolutes, etc.
The software can also be extended for determining more complex labelling requirements such as when the sum of two or more ingredients should be below a prescribed concentration level.
