22/03/2023 n/a The SCCS has not been able to conclude on the safety of fullerenes and (hydrated) hydroxylated forms of fullerenes due to a number of uncertainties and data gaps in regard to physicochemical, toxicokinetic and toxicological aspects. The available evidence indicates that hydrated forms of hydroxylated fullerenes are genotoxic and hence SCCS considers them as not safe for use in cosmetic products. The same concerns over genotoxicity potential also apply to hydroxylated fullerenes. SCCS 1649/23 Preliminary Opinion SCCS
