Regulatory issues concerning AETT and 6-MC.
Acetylethyltetramethyltetralin, a widely used synthetic fragance material, was found to cause neurotoxic effects in animals. 6-Methylcoumarin, another fragance material, was determined to be a photocontact allergen. Insufficient information on their usage, consumer exposure and likely hazard to human health under conditions of use impair regulatory decisions. FDA's ability to protect consumers against a health hazard is greatly influenced by the availability of such data.
