Product description
A clear plastic vial, with a black cap and transparent nozzle, containing yellow pigment. It has a multicoloured label (resembling a rainbow, ranging from violet to green to yellow to red) with the product brand name INTENZE and the colour name Golden Yellow. The batch number and an indication that the product is sterile are also displayed.
The product poses a chemical risk because it contains o-ANISIDINE (CAS No 90-04-0) at levels of 22 mg/kg, classified as follows: Carcinogenic. Cat. 2; R45 - Mutagenic. Cat. 3; R68 - Toxic. R23/24/25. The individual risk is indicated in detail: R45: May cause cancer; R23/24/25: Toxic by inhalation, contact with skin and if swallowed; R68: Possible risk of irreversible effects. Not compliant with European Resolution 2008 ResAP (2008)1. The risk is deemed to be serious, given that these substances are applied subcutaneously on a permanent basis. P-anisidine was also found to be present: this isomer of o-anisidine is classified as highly toxic by contact with skin and as presenting a risk of cumulative effects on certain target organs.
