The SCCS concludes the following:

1. In light of the data provided and taking under consideration the concerns related to  potential endocrine disrupting properties of Triphenyl Phosphate, does the SCCS  consider Triphenyl Phosphate safe when used as a plasticiser in nail products up to a maximum concentration of 5%?

Based on the currently available information, it is not possible for the SCCS to conclude  on the safety of Triphenyl phosphate because the genotoxicity potential cannot be  excluded.

2. Alternatively, what is according to the SCCS the maximum concentration considered safe for use of Triphenyl Phosphate in nail products?

3. Does the SCCS have any further scientific concerns with regard to the use of Triphenyl  Phosphate in nail products?

The SCCS mandates do not address environmental aspects. Therefore, this assessment did not cover the safety of Triphenyl phosphate for the environment.
