Description of key information

No studies on Si/FeSi silicate irritation/corrosion were found. Data obtained with other silicates, kaolin and glass dust indicate no or minimal induction of irritation after exposure.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin irritation / corrosion

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not irritating)

Eye irritation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not irritating)

Additional information

Insoluble silicates are the main components of Si/FeSi silicate, and therefore data obtained with various silicates were used for read-across in the absence of irritation test data with Si/FeSi silicate.

Reports on irritation tests performed with silicates, kaolin, and glass dust indicate no or minimal induction of irritation. A large number of silicates are widely accepted for use in cosmetics, and no irritation has been observed. Based on read-across data, Si/FeSi silicate is not likely to have any irritating properties.

Justification for classification or non-classification

No classification is suggested.

Read across from different silicates, kaolin, and glass dust does not indicate any irritating properties.
