Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin sensitisation

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

Data on skin sensitising are available for 2-butyloctan-1-ol (C12), 2 -octyldodecan-1-ol (C20) and a mixture of the two C20 isomers 2-octyldodecan-1-ol and 2 -hexyltetradecan-1-ol. All substances showed no skin sensitising effects in the guinea pig. As all substances of the category of Guerbet alcohols have the same structure with no additional functional groups the whole category is regarded as not sensitising.

Justification for classification or non-classification

Available data are conclusive but not sufficient for classfication of 2-hexyldecan-1-ol with regard to skin sensitisation.

There are data lacking for the classification of 2-hexyldecan-1-ol with regard to respiratory sensitisation.
