Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin sensitisation

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

In Magnusson and Kligman Guinea-Pig Maximization test (OECD TG 406), C10-12 isoalkanes (<2% aromatics), C11-C14 n-alkanes (<2% aromatics) and C10-C13 (<2% aromatics) were not dermal sensitizers using a Magnusson and Kligman Guinea-Pig Maximization test (OECD TG 406). Moreover, in studies on human volunteers using C14-C20 aliphatics (<2% aromatics), there were no signs of irritation or sensitization effects of the test substances (IUCLID section 7.10.4).

Migrated from Short description of key information:

C10-12 isoalkanes (<2% aromatics), C11-C14 n-alkanes (<2% aromatics) and C10-C13 (<2% aromatics) were not dermal sensitizers using a Magnusson and Kligman Guinea-Pig Maximization test (OECD TG 406).

Justification for classification or non-classification

These findings do not warrant the classification of Renewable hydrocarbons, C15-C18, branched alkanes fluids as a skin sensitizer under the new Regulation (EC) 1272/2008 on classification, labeling and packaging of substances and mixtures (CLP) or under the Directive 67/518/EEC for dangerous substances and Directive 1999/45/EC for preparations.
