This assessment takes account of:
a) the general toxicological profile of each ingredient used:
b) the chemical structure of each ingredient:
c) the level of exposure of each ingredient;
d) the specific exposure characteristics of the areas on which the cosmetic product will be applied;
e) the specific exposure characteristics of the class of individuals for whom the cosmetic product is intended.
Review of Ingredients.
