The article reports on the decision of the European Commission to ban 22 chemicals used in hair dye. The decision to ban the substances followed a 2003 member state and stakeholder consultation, which concluded that there was a need to establish a list of hair dye substances that are considered safe for human health. Producers were asked to provide safety files for their substances, which were evaluated by the Scientific Committee on Consumer Products.
