HAA299 (nano) - INCI: “Bis-(Diethylaminohydroxybenzoyl Benzoyl) Piperazine” (CAS 919803-06-8) - is a cosmetic ingredient with the reported functions of UV-filter.
In its Opinion SCCS/1533/14, the SCCS concluded that “the use of non-nano HAA299 […] at a concentration up to 10% as an UV-filter in cosmetic products, does not pose a risk of systemic toxicity in humans.” But the Committee added that this “Opinion does not cover the safety evaluation of HAA299 which is composed of nano particles.”
In September 2020, a dossier was submitted requesting a safety assessment of HAA299 (nano) for use as a UV filter up to a maximum concentration of 10%.
The Scientific Committee published its preliminary Opinion in July 2021.
