Safety fears over 'nano' anti-ageing cosmetics

Abstract:
The cosmetics giant L’Oréal is marketing a range of skin treatments containing tiny “nano” particles, despite concerns about their possible long-term effects on the human body.

The Cosmetic Toiletry and Perfumery Association said this weekend that nano particles were not yet widely used in cosmetics, but all products were thoroughly tested before their launch: “With millions of consumers using cosmetic products as part of their daily routines, it is essential for our industry to ensure products are thoroughly assessed for safety.”
