The European Commission published a catalogue of all nanomaterials used in cosmetic products in the EU in July 2017, and the catalogue is regularly updated. Many of the substances listed in the catalogue are also registered under the REACH Regulation.
This list includes the nanomaterials in the European Commission’s catalogue, with their EC and CAS numbers, and links them to their registration data in the chemicals database maintained by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). There you can find more information about their safe use and what regulatory activities are relevant to them.
The linking was done by matching chemical substances existing in ECHA’s database through their CAS numbers and/or with the name of the nanomaterial in the catalogue.
The European Union Observatory for Nanomaterials (EUON) provides information about existing nanomaterials on the EU market. Whether you are developing policies in the area, a consumer or representing industry or a green NGO, the information on the EUON offers interesting reading about the safety, innovation, research and uses of nanomaterials.
The EUON is funded by the European Commission. It is hosted and maintained by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).
