Below 5% the substance would be classified as skin irritation Category 2 and so the ingredient requires identification

skin irritation Category 2 10

serious eye damage Category 1

1.0

Below 3% the substance would be classified as eye irritation Category 2 and so the ingredient requires identification.

eye irritation Category 2 10
