SCCS and peanut oil:

In response to an Opinion on peanut oil adopted by the Commission’s Scientific Committee for Consumer Safety (SCCS) in March 2014, and in which the SCCS states that peanut oil cannot be used safely in cosmetics, NATRUE submitted a report on its Safety Assessment.   The SCCS thanked NATRUE for the safety assessment and in particular took note of the safe skin exposure level of 0.6ppm.  The revised Opinion was finalized at the SCCS plenary meeting in September 2014 and states that in view of the documented safe levels of oral intake of peanut protein in sensitised individuals and in view of the industry’s capability to refine peanut oil below a protein level of 0.5 ppm, the SCCS can accept this value as maximum allowable concentration in (refined) peanut oil for cosmetic use (document reference: SCCS/1526/14).
