Creme RIFM Model Benefits

The Creme RIFM model provides a detailed aggregate systemic and dermal exposure assessment system for fragrance compounds. The model has data to assess exposure for consumers across Europe and the USA. The benefits to RIFM members of using this new model include:

  • Avoiding over-estimation of exposure
  • The model will replace the previous overly conservative and unrealistic methods for estimating aggregate exposure
  • Providing a solid scientific basis for IFRA limits for systemic effects
  • More accurate and realistic evaluation of fragrance ingredient exposure
    • No longer a need to assume that a fragrance ingredient is used in every consumer product at the maximum concentration level
    • No longer a need to assume that every consumer uses every single product type every day.
    • Product usage data now based on real habits and practice information
  • Reduction in the need for clinical toxicity testing and studies
    • Delivers significant resource and budget savings as these tests are time consuming and expensive
  • Satisfying the European Commission’s request for information on aggregate exposure when assessing dermal sensitization
  • Satisfying the USA Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Reform legislation that specifically asks for aggregate exposure of a chemical ingredient
  • Providing a unified approach to Chemical Safety Assessments under REACH
