Abstract

IEC 60335-2-113:2016 deals with the safety of cosmetic and beauty care appliances incorporating lasers or intense light sources for household and similar purposes, where their operation relies on contact with the skin, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V. Battery-operated appliances and other d.c. supplied appliances are within the scope of this standard. Dual supply appliances, either mains-supplied or battery-operated, are regarded as battery-operated appliances when operated in the battery mode. This standard covers appliances with a light emitting surface less than 25 cm2. Appliances with a light emitting surface equal to or greater than 25 cm2 are within the scope of IEC 60335-2-27. Appliances not intended for normal household use but which nevertheless may be a source of danger to the public such as appliances intended to be used in beauty salons and similar premises are also within the scope of this standard. Appliances covered by the scope of this standard include but are not limited to:
- appliances for control of hair growth and
- appliances for skin and beauty care incorporating lasers or intense light sources (ILS). Appliances incorporating lasers or intense light sources (ILS) either heat up hair follicles or skin tissue to produce thermal effects or to produce photo-biological effects from specific wavelengths. As far as is practicable, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by appliances that are encountered by all persons in and around the home. However, in general, it does not take into account:
- persons (including children) whose physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge prevents them from using the appliance safely without supervision or instruction or
- children playing with the appliance. The attention of National Committees is drawn to the fact that equipment manufacturers and testing organizations may need a transitional period following publication of a new, amended or revised IEC publication in which to make products in accordance with the new requirements and to equip themselves for conducting new or revised tests. It is the recommendation of the committee that the content of this standard be adopted for implementation nationally not earlier than 12 months or later than 36 months from the date of publication. Key words: Cosmetic, Beauty Care, Lasers, Intense Light Sources

This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60335-1:2010.
