During a public meeting on Monday (8), in Brasília, the directors of ANVISA approved the new regulation for repellents. A key change relates to the labeling for these products, which can not use images and figures of child appeal, even those indicated for use in children. According to General Manager of Cosmetics Anvisa, Josineire Sallum, even repellent for use by children are toxic and therefore must be applied by an adult.

The measure seeks to prevent accidents such as the use of images and figures of child appeal may pique the interest of children. However, manufacturers may continue using colors and sayings appropriate to distinguish the product from use of adult and child use.

According to the CEO of ANVISA, Dirceu Barbano, the measure reflects a concern of the Agency in ensuring that the most vulnerable public. There are many aspects that come with the infant universe, this care is important in any product intended for children, whether cosmetic, food or medicine. We can not induce a child to drink a product for it to have a pleasant aroma, it is risky, it can be toxic, Barbano said.

Another change relates to product labels with the ingredient known as DEET. In this case, the repellent should bring a specific alert for use in children, noting that the product should not be used in children under two years. The label should also make clear that the product should not be used more than three times a day for children aged two to 12 years.

Manufacturers will have 18 months to comply with the new rules, from the publication of the measure in the Official Gazette

Another measure approved today by ANVISA provides for the inclusion of Poisoning Hotline (0800 722 6001) on packages of repellent. The product, to be used by pregnant or lactating, should be submitted before the assessment of a health professional.
