Commission Regulation (EU) 2019/680
The Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety reviewed the safety of phenylene bis-diphenyltriazine as a UV filter in sunscreen products and concluded that it was safe to use in dermally applied cosmetic products up to a maximum concentration of 5%.1 As no data was provided on the safety of phenylene bisdiphenyltriazine when inhaled the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety recommended that its use should be limited to dermal use. Commission Regulation (EU) 2019/680 adds phenylene bis-diphenyltriazine to the list of approved UV filters (annex V, entry 31) and permits its use at a maximum concentration of 5% but prohibits its use in products that may be inhaled into the lungs of the consumer.
