I’ve formulated a shampoo bar with sodium cocoyl isethionate as the only surfactant which I’m extremely happy with. I’d like to sell it in the future but am concerned that the sodium cocoyl isethionate is at a concentration of 70% in the bar and it has only been approved for safe use of up to a 50% concentration by the CIR. The reason they’ve only approved it in concentrations of up to 50% is because that’s the highest concentration that they tested. My question is, if I sell a bar that uses it at 70%, what happens exactly? Will they arrest me, break down my door, raid my shampoo bar supply, etc? I’m not exactly sure how the CIR works. I’m quite sure the bars are safe.
