Description of key information

Various literature data were available in rats for the acute toxicity of long chain alcohols (LCOH C14, C16, C18, C20 chains), alkyl sulfates (AS C12 chain representing worst case situation for C14-C20) and sodium sulfate. Based on concentration addition, LD50 values for the registered substance of 4702 and 2547 mg/kg bw could be calculated for acute oral and dermal toxicity, respectively. It can therefore be concluded that LD50 >2000 mg/kg bw for the oral and dermal route, and that there is no acute toxicity concern. For the inhalation route, acute toxicity testing is waived based on the low vapour pressure of the registered substance (4.1 Pa at 20°C).

The study in COX-SD rats is reported here.

In this study 5 male and 5 female fasted COX-CD rats were dosed by oral gavage with Alfol 14 in dose levels of 7.26, 12.62, 15.89 and 20 g/kg bw based on a range finding test. The animals were observed for clinical signs of toxicity and death several times on the day of dosing and daily thereafter. All decedents and survivors were necropsied. Survivors were weighed at the end of the observation period. Two animals which succumbed had moderate to severe congestion of the kidneys, adrenals, liver, lungs, stomach and gastrointestinal tract, hemorrhages (1 rat), and erosion of the mucosa of the stomach. The remaining decedent was in an advanced state of autolysis and no conclusions could be drawn. Of the animals that were sacrificed, gross necropsy findings were unremarkable. Animals at all dose levels showed signs of intoxication following dosing these persisting from 1 to 10 days. Erosion of the gastric mucosa was observed in two decedents but not in survivors.

The rat oral LD50 for Alfol 14 is > 20g/kg.

The IUCLID dataset of 1-Eicosanol (CAS 629-96-9; Tradename Nacol 20) in the OECD SIDS Initial Assessment Profile Long Chain Alcohols describes 1 Klimisch 1 study according to OECD TG 401 in Sprague-Dawley rats.

In this study 10 male and 10 female fasted Sprange-Dawley rats were dosed by oral gavage with Tradename Nacol 20 in 0,8%hydroxypropyl-methylcellulose gel in two doses levels of 8250 mg/kg and 10000 mg/kg.

Mortality, food and water consumption and weight gain were monitored during the observation period from 14 days. All animals were subject to gross pathological examination.

There were no deaths. No clinical signs of systemic toxicity were noted. Pathological examination was unremarkable.

The rat oral LD50 for Nacol 20 is >10000 mg/kg.

Executive summary:

The acute toxicity (LD50) of sodium sulfate has not been reliably established but is probably far in excess of 5000 mg/kg.

Also human data indicate a very low acute toxicity of sodium sulfate. Human clinical experience indicates that very high oral doses of sodium sulfate, 300 mg/kg bw up to 20 grams for an adult, are well tolerated, except from (intentionally) causing severe diarrhoea. WHO/FAO did not set an ADI for sodium sulfate.

Executive summary:

The IUCLID data set of Na2SO4 (CAS 7757 -82 -6) in the OECD SIDS INITIAL ASSESSMENT PROFILE of Sodium sulfate describes the following Klimisch 2 study.

Acute oral toxicity was tested in a drinking water study in 10 normal human subjects, 80% Caucasian with age between 24 -45 years.

In a range-finding study, four healthy volunteers received controlled amounts of drinking water with stepwise increasing concentrations of sulfate, up to 1200 mg/L of sulfate (0, 400, 600, 800, 1000 and 1200 mg/L), over six consecutive two-day periods. The calculated dose of sodium sulfate was 0, 21, 31.5, 42, 52,5 and 63 mg/kg/day.

Apart from a faster stool passage, no abnormalities were found.

In a subsequent two-day study, 6 volunteers received of 0 mg on the first and 63 mg sodium sulfate (1200 mg/L) on the second day. A clinically insignificant increase in stool volume, decrease in stool consistency and passage time was noted, but no change in stool frequency or diarrhea.

When combing the results from both studies for 0 and 1200mg/L significant decreases in stool consistency and appearance time were noted at 1200 mg/L.

Executive summary:

The IUCLID dataset of 1-Tetradecanol (CAS 112-72-1, Tradename Alfol 14) in the OECD SIDS Initial Assessment Profile Long Chain Alcohols describes two Klimisch 2 studies.

The study according to contract laboratory protocol, reported by Scientific Associates Inc. (1977b) in New Zealand White rabbits is reported here.

The test material Alfol 14, diluted 50% in a 1% w/w gum tragacanth was applied to the trunk of male and female rabbits for 24 h occlusive exposure at doses of 2000, 4000 and 8000 mg/kg bw. Each dose group consisted of 4 animals: 1 male and 1 female each with intact and abraded skin.

Mortality, clinical signs of systemic toxicity and skin reactions at the application site were recorded on the day of dosing and throughout the 14 day observation period. Body weights were recorded prior to dosing and on observation day 14. All decedents and survivors were subject to gross necropsy.

Mortality was observed on observation days 9 and 11.The number of deaths at each dose were: abraded 0/2, 0/2 and 2/2; intact 0/2, 0/2, 0/2.

At 24 hours after administration all animals showed slight to moderate erythema, desquamation, wrinkling and dryness. In all surviving animals desquamation and wrinkling persisted to the end of the observation period.

At 8000 mg/kg, two surviving animals showed signs of weakness, emaciation and pallor. All returned to normal within 4 days of exposure. Body weights of surviving animals showed a slight loss in 1 animal, constant weight in 1 animal and gains within expected limits in 8 animals.

Additional information

No extra testing was performed as literature data were available as weight-of-evidence studies for the various components of the registered substance. A selection of most reliable sources (Klimisch 1-2) was made.

Acute oral toxicity:

Various literature data were available in rats for the long chain alcohols (LCHO) with chain length between C14 and C20, as summarised below.

-      The rat oral LD50 for LCOH 14 (Alfol 14; 1-Tetradecanol;CAS 112-72-1) was >20000 mg/kg (SIDS, 2006; Scientific Associates, Inc. 1977b) and 26980 mg/kg bw (SIDS, 2006; Smyth et al, 1969; Patty, 2001; Opdycke, 1975).

-      The rat oral LD50 for LCOH 16 (1-Hexadecanol; CAS 36653-82-4) was >2000 mg/kg (SIDS, 2006; Hempstock, 1996a) and >5000 mg/kg bw (SIDS, 2006; Henkel 1981).

-      The rat oral LD50 for LCOH 18 (1-Octadecanol; CAS 112-925) was >2000 mg/kg (SIDS, 2006; Hempstock, 1996b) and >5000 mg/kg bw (SIDS, 2006; Henkel 1981g).

-      The rat oral LD50 for LCOH 20 (1-Eicosanol (CAS 629-96-9) was >10000 mg/kg (SIDS, 2006; LPT, 1987a) and > 53760 mg/kg bw (SIDS, 2006; Smyth et al, 1969).

For the alkyl sulfates (AS), there were no data for the C14-C20 chain lengths, however literature data were available for the C12 chain length:

-      The rat oral LD50 of C12-Alkylsulfate (CAS 151-21-3) was 1200 mg/kg on average or 1427 mg/kg bw for males and 977 mg/kg bw for females (SIDS, 2007; Henkel 1983a).

For the sodium sulfate, literature data were available:

-      The acute oral LD50 of sodium sulfate (CAS 7757-82-6) has not been reliably established but was probably >5000 mg/kg (SIDS, 2005).

-      An acute toxicity study with sodium sulfate (CAS 7757-82-6) was also available in humans tested by drink water at 0, 400, 600, 800, 1000 and 1200 mg/L (SIDS, 2005; Heizer et al., 1997). Decreases in stool consistency were noted at 1200 mg/L as the only finding.

-      Conclusion:

When the LD50 of the target substance was calculated by concentration addition based on the general equation as presented in the CLP regulation on mixtures (2008), based on individual LD50 values, this resulted in a dermal LD50 of 4654 mg/kg bw in rats. It can therefore be concluded that the oral LD50 of the registered substance is >2000 mg/kg bw. No classification is warranted.

Acute inhalation toxicity:

Acute inhalation toxicity testing is waived based on the low vapour pressure of the registered substance (4.1 Pa at 20°C).

Acute dermal toxicity:

Various literature data were available in rabbits for the long chain alcohols (LCHO) with chain length between C14 and C20, as summarised below.

·        The rabbit dermal LD50 for LCOH 14 (Alfol 14; 1-Tetradecanol;CAS 112-72-1) was approximately 8000 mg/kg (SIDS, 2006; Scientific Associates, Inc. 1977) and 5847 mg/kg bw (SIDS, 2006; Smyth et al, 1969).

-      The rabbit dermal LD50 for LCOH 20 (1-Eicosanol (CAS 629-96-9) was >16800 mg/kg (SIDS, 2006; Smyth et al, 1969).

For the alkyl sulfates (AS), there were no data for the C14-C20 chain lengths, however literature data were available for the C12 chain length:

-      The rabbit dermal LD50 of C12-Alkylsulfate (CAS 151-21-3) was 200 mg/kg bw for (SIDS, 2007; Carson & Oser, 1964).

For the sodium sulfate, no literature data were available.

Conclusion:

When the LD50 of the target substance was calculated by concentration addition based on the general equation as presented in the CLP regulation on mixtures (2008), based on worst case LD50 values, this resulted in a dermal LD50 of 2373 mg/kg bw in rats. It can therefore be concluded that the oral LD50 of the registered substance is >2000 mg/kg bw. No classification is warranted.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Based on these results and according to CLP (No. 1272/2008 of 16 December 2008), the registered substance does not have to be classified and has no obligatory labelling requirement for acute oral and dermal toxicity.
