Chemicals commonly used in personal care products remain in the water system and may prove hazardous for both the environment and human health, says a recent report.
The UK Royal Society of Chemistry's report calls for more research into the fate and effects of the chemicals found in personal care products, stating that current waste water treatment systems are not designed to remove such pollutants.
In addition, the report focuses on nanotechnology as an area of concern, similarly highlighting the lack of knowledge regarding the effects of nanomaterials once they reach the water system.
