The cosmetics and personal care product companies are using nanotechnology in antimicrobial soaps, sunscreens, lipstick, anti-aging creams, mascara, skin care products and other applications. nanoTox is a member of ICMAD (Independent Cosmetic Manufacturers and Distributors: www.icmad.org). NanoTox has the service capabilities to become your nanotechnology safety resource for R&D support, workplace safety, product safety testing, product liability insurance coverage, regulatory compliance and others.
The EU Commission has combined many previous directives into recent legislation (EC No. 1223/2009) requiring cosmetics companies to list nanomaterials on product label. The legislation also requires a Safety Assessment to be carried out by a qualified Safety Assessor. nanoTox can provide the information required in an EU Safety Assessment for cosmetics marketed in Europe.
nanoTox can provide you economical nanoparticle characterizations. In the EU, this information will be required to satisfy the nanomaterials labeling information for cosmetics. Additionally, we have worked with several cosmetics firms to help them find optimal particle size, characteristics and concentrations for their product. Our work is completely confidential and done under GLP quality standards.
Our long experience with various nanoparticles can be valuable to your R&D efforts by identifying those materials that are least likely to create a health issue in products.
Safety and risk assessments are done under GLP quality conditions and can be submitted to regulators to satisfy filing requirements. The reports also support product liability insurance coverage.
Our full capabilities in toxicology testing (also GLP) can provide data needed to assess the safety of your products, satisfying regulators and insurers and blunting litigators.
We can provide workplace safety reviews to help ensure your nanomaterials processing is not endangering employees and that you satisfy workplace safety regulations.
