We recognized since the beginning of the nano debate that organic pigments are nanomaterials whose safety is supported by all existing scientific studies and test results. We have worked since in different frameworks and in direct contact with authorities to strengthen this message. Our most recent activity is a specific project aimed to clarify the inhalation toxicity of nano pigments in comparison to non-nano pigments.
Key points of our strategy:
Organic pigments are been on the market for several decades, and experience over this time has given no indication of adverse effects that can be attributed solely to their very small size
We found that available measurement methods indicated that several pigments might be definitely identified as nanomaterials
