Labelling nano ingredients
Product labelling is the best way of informing people about whether cosmetic products contain nanoparticles.
As of July 2015 – two years after labelling will begin in Europe – cosmetic products with nanoingredients sold in New Zealand will have to be labelled. This is a welcome step. However, it will not cover all nanoingredients because the definition is limited in size and type, and there is still no independent safety testing.
