New Catalogue of Nanomaterials Used in Cosmetics is Now Online

The European Commission has recently published a catalogue collecting information received from operators (e.g. manufacturers, importers, etc.) on nanomaterials present in cosmetic products. This includes nanomaterials used as colourants, preservatives and UV-filters. The catalogue indicates the categories of cosmetic products and foreseeable exposure conditions. In the EU, operators must notify the cosmetic products notification portal (CPNP) of cosmetic products and whether they contain nanomaterials. According to the Commission, the catalogue will be updated regularly.
