Exposure to compounds in consumer products can be assessed using the computer program ConsExpo (Consumer Exposure). Given the huge number of consumer products, it is not possible to calculate the exposure for each separate product, so a limited number of groups containing similar products are defined. The information for each group of products is described in a fact sheet. Paint, cosmetics, children's toys and cleaning products are examples fact sheets, which have been published already. This fact sheet covers the use of cosmetics by consumers. In the fact sheet 35 product categories are described, including shampoo, make-up, lipstick, deodorant and toothpaste. To assess exposure of compounds in the cosmetics default values for all 35 product categories have been determined.
