On the inner label and the outer label of the cosmetic: "CAUTION: this product contains ingredients that may cause skin irritation on certain individuals and a preliminary test according to accompanying directions should first be made. This product must not be used for dying the eyelashes or eyebrows. To do so may cause blindness."

Instructions to the following effect accompany each package of hair dye:

  • The preparation may cause serious inflammation of the skin in some persons, and a preliminary test should always be carried out to determine whether or not special sensitivity exists; and
  • To make the test, a small area of skin behind the ear or on the inner surface of the forearm should be cleansed, using either soap and water or alcohol, and a small quantity of the hair dye, as prepared for use, should be applied to the area and allowed to dry. After 24 hours, the area should be washed gently with soap and water. If no irritation or inflammation is apparent, it is usually assumed that no hypersensitivity to the dye exists. The test should, however, be carried out before each application. On no account should the hair dye be used for dyeing eyebrows or eyelashes as severe inflammation of the eye or even blindness may result."

Manufacturers of oral products containing peroxides or peroxide-generating compounds must submit the following information to Health Canada:

  1. Data on the pH of the cosmetic product, when it is applied to the tooth or teeth, to ensure that the product is in compliance with section 13 of the Cosmetic Regulations, i.e. that the pH is greater than or equal to 4.0; and
  2. Product labelling demonstrating that all cautionary statement requirements have been met.
  3. If an oral cosmetic contains more than 3% hydrogen peroxide (or equivalent), notifiers must submit safety evidence that the product does not cause the saliva or soft tissue of the oral cavity to exceed 3% hydrogen peroxide, and is safe when used as directed. Evidence may include analog studies from recognized sources or independent clinical research.

NB: Be aware of the conversion factor between hydrogen peroxide and other peroxide-generating compounds. For example, 10% carbamide (urea) peroxide is approximately equivalent to 3% hydrogen peroxide.

 

"If irritation (such as redness, swelling, soreness) of the gums or the mouth occurs, discontinue use and consult an oral health professional."

"Products containing peroxides are not recommended for use by children under 12 years of age."

"Consult your oral health professional before prolonged use of this product."

"Avoid swallowing the cosmetic or part thereof."

"Avoid contact of the product with the eye."

"Avoid direct contact of the active surface of the tooth whitening product with the gums and/or salivary flow."

a) Not permitted in products intended for use on the skin.    
b) Oxidative hair dyes b) 3% after dilution with an oxidizer b) On the inner label and the outer label of the cosmetic:

"CAUTION:
This product contains ingredients that may cause skin irritation on certain individuals and a preliminary test according to accompanying directions should first be made. This product must not be used for dying the eyelashes or eyebrows. To do so may cause blindness."

Instructions to the following effect accompany each package of hair dye:

  1. the preparation may cause serious inflammation of the skin in some persons and a preliminary test should always be carried out to determine whether or not special sensitivity exists; and
  2. to make the test, a small area of skin behind the ear or on the inner surface of the forearm should be cleansed, using either soap and water or alcohol, and a small quantity of the hair dye as prepared for use should be applied to the area and allowed to dry. After 24 hours, the area should be washed gently with soap and water. If no irritation or inflammation is apparent, it is usually assumed that no hypersensitivity to the dye exists. The test should, however, be carried out before each application. On no account should the hair dye be used for dyeing eyebrows or eyelashes as severe inflammation of the eye or even blindness may result.
