Catalogue of cosmetic ingredients

Catalogue of cosmetic ingredients

The European Commission published a catalogue of all nanomaterials used in cosmetic products in the EU in July 2017, and the catalogue is regularly updated. Many of the substances listed in the catalogue are also registered under the REACH Regulation.

The table below lists the nanomaterials in the European Commission’s catalogue, with their EC and CAS numbers, and links them to their registration data in the chemicals database maintained by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). There you can find more information about their safe use and what regulatory activities are relevant to them.

The linking was done by matching chemical substances existing in ECHA’s database through their CAS numbers and/or with the name of the nanomaterial in the catalogue.

As the registration of nanomaterials under the cosmetics regulation and the registration of substances under REACH have different scopes, it is not possible to a have a perfect match in all cases. Some of the entries in the catalogue of nanomaterials used in cosmetic products are more specific in scope than the substances registered under REACH. Note that a registration made under REACH may not specifically cover the nanoforms of the substances used in cosmetics.
