BBP in Lipstick

Butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP)

Butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP) is prohibited from use in all cosmetics throughout Europe. This includes both products made and sold in the EU and products imported into the EU to be sold. The ban came into effect in August 2006 after concerns were expressed over the safety of BBP. The cosmetics industry fully supported proposals for the ban.
