Scientific body calls for more transparency on nanotechnology

Abstract:
The Royal Society has re-iterated its concerns about the use of nanotechnology in cosmetics products following concerns raised in the British press about L’Oreal's ‘nanosome’ anti-aging products, reports Simon Pitman.

“It seems that there is really very little publicly funded research looking into the effects of nanoparticles being taken into the body through the skin,” said Sue Windebank, senior spokesperson for the Royal Society, the UK’s leading scientific body. “The cosmetics companies may of course be doing their own research, but much of the information about what kind of safety assessments are being undertaken is not publicly listed.”
