The publication follows a request to Responsible Persons to updated the information in the Catalogue to increase consistency and accuracy. In EU all cosmetic products, including nanomaterials, have to be notified via the Cosmetic Products Notification Portal.
By the end of 2018, less than 1.5% of cosmetic products were notified to contain nanomaterials. The Catalogue lists 29 Nanomaterials with various types of functions in cosmetics (e.g. as colourants, UV-filters, or other functions).
