Updated Litagion agent and company profiles impacted by newly published peer-reviewed science and newly gathered company information
Climbazole. Climbazole [CAS No. 38083-17-9] is a broad-spectrum imidazole antifungal agent. Its chemical structure and properties are similar to other fungicides such as ketoconazole and miconazole. Climbazole is commonly used in over-the-counter shampoos, conditioners, lotions, and face washes to treat fungal skin infections like eczema and dandruff. It is also used as a preservative in personal care products.
2-ethylhexyl diphenyl phosphate. 2-ethylhexyl diphenyl phosphate (EHDPP) [CAS No. 1241-94-7] is a flame retardant and plasticizer. EHDPP is commonly used in polyvinyl chloride resin but is compatible with other resins used in textile, synthetic rubber, paint, and polyurethane foam manufacturing to improve tensile strength, enhance abrasion and moisture resistance, and impart flame resistance. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration allows the use of EHDPP in food-wrapping films and meat packaging. It is also the main component of non-flammable hydraulic fluids used in aircraft.
