Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
Eye Contact: Avoid eye contact. This product has not been tested for acute eye hazards. May be irritating to the eyes upon direct contact. Exposure to mists and vapors may be irritating to the eyes. These effects are transient, and complete recovery follows.
Skin Contact: Avoid skin contact. This product has not been tested for acute dermal effects. This product is expected to be practically non-irritating upon direct contact. Prolonged or repeated contact may result in contact dermatitis which is characterized by dryness, chapping, and reddening. Pre-existing skin conditions may make the skin more susceptible and facilitate uptake
by this route. A single dermal exposure is not harmful, but prolonged and repeated skin contact with large quantities of ingredients in this
product may cause drowsiness.
Inhalation: This product is not expected to pose an inhalation hazard under conditions of foreseeable use. Caution should be taken to minimize exposure to aerosols/mists of this product. Acute and chronic overexposures may be irritating to the respiratory tract. Inhalation of high concentrations of this product can cause central nervous system depression and narcosis. Severe intoxication may lead to drowsiness, dullness, numbness, and headache followed by dizziness, weakness, and nausea. While affected, the ability to perform skilled tasks is compromised. Exposure to extremely high concentrations may have anesthetic effects but are completely reversible upon cessation of exposure. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling this product can be harmful or fatal.
Ingestion: Not applicable by this route of exposure. Ingestion is unlikely for aerosol products.

Medical Conditions Aggravated by Exposure: Drying and chapping may make the skin more susceptible to other irritants, sensitizers and disease.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
Prolonged or repeated contact may result in contact dermatitis which is characterized by dryness, chapping, and reddening. Pre-existing skin conditions may make the skin more susceptible and facilitate uptake
by this route. A single dermal exposure is not harmful, but prolonged and repeated skin contact with large quantities of ingredients in this
product may cause drowsiness.
Chronic inhalation overexposures may be irritating to the respiratory tract. Inhalation of high concentrations of this product can cause central nervous system depression and narcosis. Severe intoxication may lead to drowsiness, dullness, numbness, and headache followed by dizziness, weakness, and nausea.
