The hypoallergenic claim can only be used if the allergic potential of the respective product is minimized. The manufacturer must have evidence to support the claim by verifying and confirming that the product has very low allergic potential with scientific evidence-based and statistically reliable data (e.g. review of post-marketing surveillance data, etc.). This assessment should be constantly updated in the light of new data.
If a cosmetic product is claimed to be “hypoallergenic”; The use of known allergens or precursors, ingredients defined as “sensitizer” / “skin sensitizer” in internationally accepted sources or scientific publications, ingredients classified as “skin sensitizer” in the legislation on substances and mixtures, or components for which there is no data on whether they are sensitizers should be avoided.
Since the “hypoallergenic” claim does not provide the assurance that the product will not cause allergies in any way, it is not appropriate to include statements that the product will not cause allergies.
