Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Administrative data

Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Skin sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no adverse effect observed (not sensitising)
Additional information:

High molecular lactate esters including mixtures containing tetradecyllactate appear to be non-sensitizers. Myristyl lactate was not a sensitizer to guinea pig skin.

Respiratory sensitisation

Endpoint conclusion
Endpoint conclusion:
no study available

Justification for classification or non-classification

Conclusively, myristyl lactate is not a skin sensitizer and is not classified as such. Due to a lack of data, no conclusive decision can be made regarding respiratory sensitization. However, considering the rather low vapor pressure, exposure through inhalation is an unlikely route.
