Ensuring Beauty with Integrity: Kiri10’s Commitment to Nitrosamine-Free Keratin

At Kiri10, we are committed to delivering not only beauty but also wellness and safety through our products. As part of our ongoing dedication, we want to share important insights about our Functional Keratin®, which is guaranteed free from nitrosamines, harmful impurities linked to health risks.

What Are Nitrosamines?

Nitrosamines are chemical compounds that have been found in various personal care products and are linked to significant health concerns, including increased risk of cancer. These impurities can form under certain conditions in products like shampoos, conditioners, and lotions. Given their risks, nitrosamines are strictly regulated in the EU and other regions.

Regulatory Landscape

The European Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS) has established strict limits for these compounds, capping them at 50 μg/kg in both raw materials and finished cosmetic products. This stringent regulation is a part of a broader effort to safeguard consumers, with similar guidelines being discussed by agencies like the FDA and EMA.

Kiri10’s Proactive Measures

In alignment with international safety standards, Kiri10's Functional Keratin® has undergone rigorous independent testing to ensure that it meets the highest safety criteria. Our tests confirm nitrosamine levels are well below the allowable limits, with findings consistently showing less than 1 ppb, essentially negligible. This is a testament to our high manufacturing standards and our commitment to safety and quality.
