These exposure data were generated using probabilistic analysis to provide pertinent and powerful prediction for the European population.

These new data reflect the up-to-date habits and practices of cosmetic use in Europe and will provide a valuable base for conducting both sensitisation and systemic risk assessments for cosmetic ingredients.
