Laboratory measurement of the flash point of cosmetic products

Perfumes and other alcohol based cosmetic products must be subjected to flash point testing in accordance with regulations.

A flash point refers to the temperature at which these cosmetic products emit enough vapors to make a flammable mixture with air which can be ignited by an electrical discharge or even under the effects of high heat.

In Europe, the competent authorities classify flammable cosmetic products according to their degree of flammability, i.e., according to their flash point and boiling temperatures :

  • Category 1 flammable liquids : these are extremely flammable liquids, with flash points under 23°C and a boiling temperature under 35°C
  • Category 2 flammable liquids : these are easily flammable liquids, with flash points under 23°C and a boiling temperature over 35°C
  • Category 3 flammable liquids : these are flammable liquids, with flash points between, 23°C and 60°C
