    How was the 0.1% value decided?

    What happens at concentrations greater than that? Did the EU furnish any evidence that using a concentration of 0.11% was harmful?

    Thanks, lpp! I didn't know the rules on sample passes. I won't bring it up again, but if anyone wants to organize one in the appropriate manner I am happy to provide the oakmoss materials.

    noggs, I am not sure how they arrived at 0.1%. There was at least one study done after that decision that showed some people had allergic reactions, but many of the studies they have done were apparently flawed, so I doubt that they really know for sure what the limit should be. I think that's why they agreed to do more research with a different protocol. It is possible they will decide that there is no safe limit for atranol/chloroatranol and ban them altogether sometime in the next year or two. We'll have to see what their research finds.

    I'm editing this post to add a link to a study that used 1% moss (not 0.1%) and found it caused allergic reactions, but that was in people who were already known to be allergic, and it sounds like they put a patch on rather than using a normal perfume type of application exposure. Maybe if they do more appropriate studies at 0.1% and in the general population they will be able to show that 0.1% is very minimal risk.

    I'm sure that if they sprayed a little bit of any classic perfume on anyone walking down the street (and did NOT paste a patch on the perfume to maintain strength and prevent normal evaporation) there would be zero negative effects on 99.99% of people.

    Remember when they changed lighters so they were childproof and then nobody could operate them? Now they just have a warning label and they operate normally again. People with arthritis are relieved as is the adult world in general. Whew!
