Vitamin K1– use in cosmetic products determined as unsafe

 
 Following the French relative to cosmetic products to provisionally ban the use of vitamin K1 in cosmetic products, the SCCP delivered an opinion on 28 September 2007.

It concluded that: "Because of the inadequate nature of the dossier submitted, the SCCP is unable to provide an adequate safety. However, as such use may cause cutaneous allergy, individuals so affected may be denied an important therapeutic agent".

A public consultation on a possible ban of phytonadione was opened from 13 November to 21 December 2007.  In view of the answers received a new consultation of the SCCP occurred. It delivered its final opinion and concluded that: "the studies provided on the allergenic potential of Vitamin K1 did not supersede the concerns stated in the opinion.

The SCCP maintains the view that use of Vitamin K1 in cosmetic products is not safe, since it may cause cutaneous allergy and individuals so affected may be denied an important therapeutic agent".
