Nano and cosmetics: DGCCRF’s report and COSMED’s clarifications

.
.
.

The table drawn up by the DGCCRF following its tests of cosmetic products is edifying: unauthorized nanomaterials, lack of [nano] labeling, low awareness of companies incorrectly informed by the Federation of Beauty Companies (FEBEA), etc.


The DGCCRF mentions a contrario the work of the association COSMED which gathers the SME-TPE of the sector. It published the same day a very useful press release clarifying the true from the false concerning nanomaterials.
