An eye shadow containing % Glyceryl Dilaurate did not induce skin irritation in a single insult patch test, but mild skin irritation reactions to a foundation containing the same concentration were observed. A trade mixture containing Glyceryl Dibehenate did not induce irritation or significant cutaneous intolerance in a 48 hour occlusive patch test. In maximization tests, neither an eye shadow nor a foundation containing % Glyceryl Dilaurate was a skin sensitizer. Sensitization was not induced in subjects patch tested with 50% Glyceryl Dioleate in a repeated insult, occlusive patch test. Glyceryl Palmitate Lactate (50%) did not induce skin irritation or sensitization in subjects patch tested in a repeat insult patch test.
