EU to ban 12 nanomaterials in cosmetics

The European Commission has notified the World Trade Organisation of a draft amendment adding 12 nanomaterials to the list of substances banned under the Cosmetic Products Regulation.

They are:

  • Styrene/acrylates copolymer
  • Sodium styrene/acrylates copolymer
  • Copper
  • Colloidal copper
  • Hydroxyapatite, gold
  • Colloidal gold
  • Gold thioethylamino hyaluronic acid
  • Acetyl heptapeptide-9 colloidal gold
  • Platinum
  • Colloidal platinum
  • Acetyl tetrapeptide-17 colloidal platinum

This measure is based on opinions reached by the EU Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety in 2021, identifying a basis of concern for the substances. It will be open for a 60-day comment period at the WTO, and is expected to be adopted in the EU in Q3, with entry into force 20 days after publication in the Official Journal.
