Description of key information

Calcium chloride is not sensitizing to skin.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not sensitising)
Additional information:

Calcium chloride is considered not to have any sensitising properties, based on the physiological role of both its constituent ions, as well as the fact that sensitising effects of calcium chloride have never been reported, despite long-term historical and wide dispersive use (e.g. via food and medication).

Respiratory sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not sensitising)
Additional information:

Calcium chloride is considered not to have any sensitising properties, based on the physiological role of both its constituent ions, as well as the fact that sensitising effects of both ions have never been reported, despite long-term historical and wide dispersive use (e.g. via food and medication).

As a result, calcium chloride is assumed not sensitizing to the respiratory tract.
