Report suggest weak US cosmetic regulation could hit investment

According to the report the US cosmetics industry currently uses around 15 per cent of the 75,000 chemicals legally registered in the US, but the FDA bans or restricts a total of just nine chemicals on that list.

Both the use of nanotechnology and phthalates have come under particular scrutiny, but many other ingredients and chemicals linked to cancer have also given rise to concern.
