Legislation set to shape nanotech cosmetics
Despite pressure for increased legislation on the use of nanotechnology in cosmetic products throughout 2007, the number of nanoparticle-containing products continues to grow.
The year has been characterised by increasing attention on the use of nanotechnology in a wide range of consumer products, including cosmetics and personal care formulations.
The use of nanoparticles in personal care products has come under criticism as some believe particles of this size may not behave in a predictable way, perhaps having unforeseen negative side effects for the consumer.
