The New Scientist has criticized the Soil Association's 'false, unscientific distinctions' following its ban on man-made nanoparticles appearing in health, beauty and food products.
Nanoparticles are appearing in an increasing number of personal care products, particularly sunscreens, although fears over the safety of the technology and calls for its regulation are widespread.
Earlier this month the UK-based Soil Association announced a ban on man-made nanoparticles in its organically certified products that has attracted criticism from the New Scientist magazine.
"There is no evidence that people who apply suncreams are putting themselves at risk, as the Soil Association implies, but there is still a great deal of research to be done" said Michael Bond in a New Scientist Editorial column.
