Nitrosamines are chemical compounds classified as potential carcinogens. Nitrosamines are formed when nitrosating agents react with secondary or tertiary amines. Examples of nitrosating agents include nitrites (such as sodium nitrite) and nitrogen oxides. These compounds can be found in various environments and can react with amines from different sources. This reaction can additionally occur under specific conditions, such as high pH or elevated temperature.

The possibility of introducing and making available cosmetics with Lilial in the European market ended on March 1, 2022. Why? Because Article 15 of the Cosmetics Regulation prohibits us from using the CMR substances (unless by way of cosmetic legislation exception, we can justify its safe use… but that didn’t happen here).
The 11th revision of the SCCS Notes of Guidance introduces a number of important changes for the safety assessment of cosmetic ingredients.
It was a great pleasure! Once again, we had an opportunity of sharing the knowledge with ambitious and meticulous
participants of the Theta Safety Assessor course.
One of the lecturers is Iwona Białas, PhD who will train participants during the last 6 block of classes – Safety Assessment.
At the invitation of the organizers of the 8th Cosmetics Industry Forum, Iwona Białas, PhD prepared a speech for the participants entitled “Responsibility for placing a cosmetic on the market … Consumer safety, brand image and company stability at stake”.
