ANSES is publishing its expert appraisal work on ammonium, potassium and sodium persulphate substances used mainly in hair bleaching products. The Agency has concluded that the use of persulphates poses health risks to hairdressing professionals and consumers, as these sensitising substances cause allergic respiratory and skin reactions. In view of the reported effects and disorders, ANSES recommends that exposure of professionals and the general public to products containing persulphates be reduced to a minimum.
