Louise Cerrato's insight:

Like the Slow Food movement, the Slow Cosmetique wants the consumers to be free from the surrounding Greenwashing trend in marketing but also from the finished products sold in our stores with greenwashed messages.

 

Here are the brands approved & recommended by Slow Cosmétique.

Nanos et cosmétiques : quelle réglementation en Europe

Le Réglement Cosmétiques de 2009 exige qu'à partir de juillet 2013 les fabricants indiquent la présence des nanomatériaux dans la liste des ingrédients des cosmétiques.

La règle d’étiquetage prévoit que soit indiqué le terme nano entre crochets après le nom de ingrédient concerné. Par exemple dans le cas du TiO2 : Titanium dioxyde [nano].

Une déclaration obligatoire de la part des industriels sera également instituée pour les produits cosmétiques contenant des nanomatériaux. Un rapport sur la sécurité toxicologique sera exigé dans le cadre de cette procédure.

Est considéré comme nanomatériau "un matériau insoluble ou bio-persistant, fabriqué intentionnellement et se caractérisant par une ou plusieurs dimensions externes, ou une structure interne, sur une échelle de 1 à 100 nm".
