Basic Blue 99

Basic Blue 99 is a direct hair dye substance in hair dye formulations with a concentration on-head of maximum 1.0%.
In September 2011 the Scientific Committee for Consumer Safety (SCCS) concluded that:
"Basic Blue 99 is a mixture of 23-32 substances of varying concentrations as demonstrated by the HPLC analysis of two batches RS2798801 and 74/75. Due to the highly variable composition of Basic Blue 99 in these batches, the safety of Basic Blue 99 cannot be evaluated."
Based on these conclusions, in July 2014 EFfCI2 has provided new analytical data (Submission III) on the batches presented by COLIPA in the previous submissions, and on other more recent batches.

For exhaustive background information:

Opinion

Basic Blue 99 is a mixture of up to 40 substances of varying concentrations as demonstrated by the HPLC analysis of six batches (See Figures 1-3 and Tables 2, 3 and 5).
Due to the highly variable composition of Basic Blue 99 in six batches, the safety of Basic Blue 99 cannot be evaluated.
