Efforts by EU governments to force cosmetics manufacturers to inform consumers when products contain nanomaterials were resisted by Germany, it has emerged. Last week (20 November), EU member states adopted new rules on the marketing and safety of cosmetics by grouping the existing 55 directives into a single regulation.
One of the key elements of the new streamlined laws is a clause requiring companies to print the word 'nano' in brackets after any ingredient which is smaller than 100 nanometres in size.
"All ingredients present in the form of nanomaterials shall be clearly indicated in the list of ingredients," according to the new legislation.
However, Germany took the view that highlighting the fact that a product contains nanomaterials could be viewed by consumers as a warning.
