REACH Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Tattoo Inks and Permanent Make-up

Little Pro on 2019-03-18

On 14 March 2019, ECHA’s Committee for Socio-economic Analysis (SEAC) has adopted a restriction proposal on hazardous substances in tattoo inks and permanent make-up. This means that this restriction will be added to REACH annex XVII restricted substances list soon.

Substances within the scope of the restriction include carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic (CMR) substances, skin sensitisers or irritants, substances corrosive or damaging to the eye, metals as well as other substances regulated in cosmetic products.

Suppliers of tattoo inks and permanent make-up will have to reformulate their inks within 12 months of the restriction entering into effect.
