Nanotechnologies and cosmetic products: new obligations and legal uncertainties
European Union | February 03 2011

As the cosmetics industry is one of the highest-level users of nanomaterials, cosmetics companies should begin adapting their chain of production and supply to deal with the obligations set down in the regulation.
