They worry many consumers due to their possible toxicity for the human body. But manufacturers are also concerned, since they use them for their multiple cosmetic properties and constantly need to adapt to new regulatory requirements, often with insufficient means available. Definition(s), characterization, safety assessment and regulations, scientific studies, alerts and debates…

This databook explores the core of the infinitesimal of nano-ingredients !

Since 2013 (and the entry into force of the Cosmetic Regulations and its new provisions on nanomaterials), requests for Opinions to the SCCS have been made one after the other.
In a first step, this has allowed to define conditions for the safe use of UV filters in nano form (Titanium dioxide, Zinc oxide…) as well as a preservative (Methylene bis-benzotriazolyl tetramethylbutylphenol - MBBT) . But things got more complicated afterwards, and more and more frequently, the Scientific Committee can only conclude… that it cannot conclude, for lack of sufficient or adequate data. This makes it impossible to decide on the regulatory status of substances, and leaves them, often for an indefinite period of time, in a most uncomfortable legal limbo. 3

As a result, today, as for several years now, and most certainly for many years to come, manufacturers of raw materials or cosmetic products are left with questions with often random answers: is my ingredient nano or not? Can I use it in my formulas? And if so, for how much longer? Should I label it nano or not?

It is to help them see more clearly and make the right decisions that CosmeticOBS has gathered in this ebook all the detailed sheets of ingredients listed in version 2 of the European catalogue of nanomaterials in cosmetics. With for each one, all the currently applicable regulations, the specifications to be respected for their use, their progress in the regulatory process, the blocking points that delay their evaluation…
