1,4-Dioxane Online Calculator launched in US

BASF has launched its new 1,4-Dioxane Online Calculator, which will allow personal care formulators to determine the 1,4-Dioxane content in their formulas. The tool is accessible from both desktop and mobile devices and recommends alternative BASF ingredients to bring the total 1,4-Dioxane value of the formulation to less than 1ppm.

“This tool will assist our partners in complying with regulations ahead of the 2022 and 2023 deadlines,” said Daniele Piergentili, vice president, BASF Home & Personal Care, North America. “It is a testament to our commitment to support the growth of our customers by providing digital tools that ultimately support faster formulation decisions.”

S4389B, a New York state law signed in December 2019, prohibits the sale of personal care products and household cleaning products containing more than 2ppm 1,4- Dioxane, as well as cosmetics products containing more than 10ppm 1,4-Dioxane by the end of 2022. For personal care and household cleaning products the limit will be further reduced to 1ppm at the end of 2023.

The state of California is also assessing 1,4-Dioxane in home and personal care products through the Safer Consumer Products program and research is estimated to be completed in three years.

To allow for full formulation flexibility, in addition to the BASF product offering and recommendations, the 1,4-Dioxane Online Calculator allows inclusion of non-BASF  ingredients if the 1,4-Dioxane level in them is identified. Formulators are also able to place sample requests for BASF ingredients directly from the calculator.
