Abstract

This report looks at the consumer products containing nanomaterials in the Dutch, European and global market, and attempted to identify areas where there was a high priority for research to be done on the risk of consumer exposure to nanomaterials. They based this ranking on the overall presence of these products on the global market, and by identifying the most relevant exposure characteristics within the different products. The report identifies suncare cosmetics, DIY coatings and adhesives, personal care products, and cleaning products as those with the greatest need for a robust risk assessment to be conduct. This assessment should include must be conducted and include information on the external exposure, internal exposure, and the kinetics and toxicity of the nanomaterials utilized in these products.
