Definition and regulation of nanomaterials in cosmetics: note from the French authorities

.
.
.

The DGCCRF and the ANSM published today an information note on the definition and regulation of nanomaterials in cosmetics. This document is also intended to “contribute to greater transparency on a particularly complex issue”, and to “contribute to the ongoing debates at European level”.

As a reminder, the controls conducted by the French authorities have highlighted the presence of unauthorized nanomaterials in some cosmetic products as well as the absence on the label of the mention [nano] in the list of ingredients in front of some substances present in nanoparticulate form.
