Concerns about Nano-materials in sunscreen spread to Europe

Abstract:
TONY EASTLEY: Europe and the United states have now become embroiled in the controversy over allegations that an Australian manufacturer of sunscreen ingredients falsely claimed its products were free of controversial nano-materials.

The Australian manufacturer in question exports to both the US and Europe.

Europe's certification body says it will now conduct its own scientific tests on the product.
