Coconut diethanolamide has caused skin irritation and sensitization in humans and was a skin and eye irritant in rabbits. It was of low acute oral toxicity in rats. Changes in blood biochemical markers were reported in rabbits following repeated dermal applications of a formulation containing coconut diethanolamide. The diethanolamide gave no evidence of mutagenicity in mammalian cells in culture and it was inactive in bacterial assays, including the Ames mutagenicity test.
