Europe: ban on the use of methylisothiazolinone in leave-on products approved

As of February 2017, leave-on cosmetic products containing methylisothiazolinone will no longer be allowed on the market.

A widely-used preservative in many personal care products, methylisothiazolinone has been associated with various allergic reactions.

The ban was proposed last year and will most probably be followed by a complete restriction in the very near future.
