The following text is copied from the OECD SIDS Initial Assessment Report on sodium percarbonate, section 3.1.8, page 21:

"Neither an animal study on toxicity to reproduction nor a study on developmental toxicity are available for sodium percarbonate. A developmental toxicity study with sodium carbonate revealed no substance related fetotoxic, embrytoxic or teratogenic effects. From the nature of the substance it is to be anticipated that neither sodium percarbonate nor hydrogen peroxide and sodium carbonate will be systemically available under human exposure conditions and are thus unlikely to reach the gonads and the developing embryo or fetus. Therefore the substance is unlikely to have any relevant potential for toxicity to reproduction or developmental toxicity and no further animal testing is warranted for those endpoints."


Short description of key information:
It is unlikely that sodium percarbonate or its degradation products sodium carbonate and hydrogen peroxide will reach the gonads or the developing embryo or foetus.

Effects on developmental toxicity

Description of key information
It is unlikely that sodium percarbonate or its degradation products sodium carbonate and hydrogen peroxide will reach the gonads or the developing embryo or foetus.
