Foot balm as a moisturiser/product category for regulating salicylic acid?
I am puzzled with EU restrictions on salicylic acid use in cosmetics, in Annex III it is stated that up to 2% can be used in leave on products except
body lotion, eye shadow,
mascara, eyeliner, lipstick,
roll-on deodorant (see picture below).
Is my foot balm the same as body lotion? It is not intended to be use onthe body, but on feet and heels. Salicylic acid is a common active in these products does it have to be restricted up to 0,5%, while a face serum can use up to 2%?
It does not make sense to me.
What is your opinion? Which category I should follow for a boot balm?
My opinion is b. I will also discuss with my safety assesor.
