The utilization of a significant number of these substances is permitted inside specific limits, because of their toxicity at higher concentrations. Other significant viewpoints ought to be considered as, for example, the likelihood of long-term effects. In the light of the continuous and close nature of the contact on skin and mucosa with these items, it is significant that they don&#39;t contain conceivably perilous substances. Additionally, the everyday use and continuous exposition of people to a wide scope of personal consideration items and to various types of chemicals, got from a few sources, may cause the alleged &quot;cocktail effect&quot; because of the synergistic interaction of various substances and, likewise, the &quot;added substance effect&quot; in light of the nearness of a similar ingredient in numerous items.
