Survey and Health Assessment of Products for Interior Car Care

Survey of Chemical Substances in Consumer Products 105, 2010

The Danish Environment Protection Agency has performed a survey of chemicals in products for interior car care. In addition, a number of products were selected for chemical analysis and assessment of effects on human health. The exposure calculations for inhalation of the chemical substances in the products show no health risk related to normal use of the analysed products for interior car care. The products must be used in double amounts and more frequent than every second week before a long term risk is possible.

The exposure calculations for skin contact show that even though the products for interior car care are applied without using gloves, then there will be no health risk connected with using the analysed product as long as the user washes hands after use or only uses interior car care products every fortnight.
