Akema presents Glyoxylic acid 50 as a hair conditioning agent with hair straightening activity for safe and long lasting smoothing treatment, alternative to traditional alkalyne straighteners and free from formaldehyde.
The Regulation (EC) N° 1272/2008 on the Classification, Labelling and Packaging (CLP) of chemical substances and mixtures started to apply as from 1 December 2010. The CLP Regulation implements the United Nations Globally Harmonized System (GHS) at EU level and will gradually replace Directive 67/548 for dangerous substances (DSD) and Directive 1999/45 for preparations (DPD). On 3 January 2011 expired the deadline for companies to notify the classification and labelling of all chemical substances that are hazardous or subject to registration under REACh and placed on the EU market.
As a manufacturer of chemicals, Akema has classified and labelled its substances in line with the new CLP criteria and notified the classifications to the C&L Inventory in ECHA.
We’ve added to our product portfolio the preservative system Kemidant Plus. This is a highly efficacious synergistic combination largely used in personal care, representing an alternative to parabens based systems. Kemidant Plus is a cost effective option for most cosmetic applications, with an unrestricted global approval in rinse-off products.
We’re introducing our Kem E, a mild preserving combination designed for the protection of natural & organic cosmetics in conformity to major certification standards (Ecocert, Soil Association, BDIH, AIAB). Kem E has broad spectrum efficacy and is worldwide approved in all product categories. Please ask us for more information.
The six-month pre-registration period is now closed. Akema has pre-registered all phase-in substances manufactured in quantity over 1 Ton/year, then we’re going to start the pre-SIEFs activities and planning SIEFs strategy to start the pipeline for registration. Upon request we’ll provide to customers our pre-registration details.
Akema is present at the exhibition on the stand of its local agent Nardev Chemie.
EUROPEAN COMMUNITY – 1 June 2008
The new European Regulation on chemicals, known as REACh, is now procedurally operative. All European manufacturers and importers of chemicals must register not exempted substances to ECHA. Existing substances can be pre-registered within 1 December 2008, in order to take advantage of transitional provisions for “phase-in” substances.
Akema will pre-register in due time all substances manufactured in quantity over 1 ton/year with the intention to register within 2013/2018 deadlines. As a downstream user, Akema will ensure that substances used for manufacturing will be duly pre-registered and/or registered.
We’re working to ensure a smooth transition from the current system to full compliance with REACh Regulation. If you have more question concerning how REACh will affect our products, you can contact us at email@example.com .
