Toxicokinetic Assessment Mexoryl SBO


No ADME with the Mexoryl SBO are available but a dermal absorption study is available.

However, in one acute and one repeated dose oral toxicity study rats show signs of systemic toxicity. Also in one teratogenicity study in the rabbit with Mexoryl SBO systemic toxicity was seen leading to the conclusion that the test substance is bioavailable after oral application.

After dermal application of 1000 mg test substance/kg bw in a rat repeated dose toxicity study limited systemic effects could be observed. The octanol/water partition coefficient of 3.2 indicates lipophilic property of the substance and it can be assumed that the substance penetrates to some extend though the skin. However, due to the low toxicological potential of the test substance only very limited clinical signs could be observed after dermal exposure.

In the in vitro percutaneous penetration (OECD 428) study tetrahydrojasmonate at 4% in a typical ‘Leave-on’ skin care formulation penetrated through human dermatomed skin at a very slow rate. The extent of tetrahydrojasmonate penetration through human skin amounted to only 0.494 ± 0.520% (0.403 ± 0.424 μg/cm2) of the applied dose, after 24 hours.

The mean total systemically available dose of tetrahydrojasmonate (remaining epidermis plus dermis and receptor fluid) was 2.92 ± 1.52% of the applied dose (corresponding to 2.39 ± 1.24 μg/cm2).

The substance Mexoryl SBO is a liquid at room temperature with the vapour pressure of 988 Pa. Inhalation exposure might be possible via evaporation and as aerosol.
