Ethylene bis stearamide produced slight eye and skin irritation in rabbits, and signs of respiratory tract irritation in rats. It was of low acute toxicity in rats and mice treated orally and in rabbits exposed by dermal application. Limited long-term rat feeding studies failed to identify any particular target organ and gave no conclusive evidence of carcinogenicity. Ethylene bis stearamide failed to induce chromosome damage in mammalian cells in culture. It was not mutagenic in bacterial assays (including the Ames test), and gave no evidence of genotoxic activity in yeast.
