Actually, the use of these substances in cosmetic products was considered unsafe for human health by the Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) in its opinion of 26–27 June 2012. According to the Committee, these three fragrance allergens were the cause of the highest number of contact allergies cases in past years.

Four years after the date of entry into force cosmetic products containing one or more of the substances prohibited by this Regulation shall be withdrawn from the Union market.
