Colophonium: A translucent yellowish to dark brown resin derived from the stumps or sap of various pine trees and is used to increase sliding friction, as on the bows of certain stringed instruments, and to manufacture a wide variety of products including varnishes, inks, linoleum, adhesives, and soldering compounds.

64 studies in PubMed science library may include information on the toxicity of this chemical. Typically a dermatitis can result from skin exposure and there is also a potential of some immune toxicity.

EWG: 1-2 But insufficient information noted
