JRC calls for study on health risks of hair dyes

September 2, 2005

Brussels, 01 Sep 2005

The European Commission's Joint Research Centre has published a call for tenders for a review of the health effects and related risks from hair dyes.

During the last decades there has been a number of animal and human studies on the potential health effects and risks resulting from the use of hair dyes, including skin allergies, hair loss, genetic toxicity, carcinogenicity, reproductive/endocrine effects and others.

More recently several published reports have discussed the potential association between permanent hair dye use and bladder cancer.
