FLUIDINOVA’s nanoXIM·CarePaste, which is a nano-hydroxyapatite (nHAp) product, has been approved as safe for use in oral care cosmetics by the European Scientific Committee on Consumer Safety (SCCS). The SCCS adopted and published on 23rd March 2023 a Final Opinion SCCS/1648/22 on hydroxyapatite (nano) safety regarding its use in oral care products. This approval was based on data provided by FLUIDINOVA over the past decade, and it states that hydroxyapatite (nano) is safe to use in toothpaste at concentrations of up to 10% and up to 0.465% in mouthwash.
The safety evaluation applies only to nanoXIM·CarePaste, which is composed of rod-shaped particles with specific characteristics and is not coated or surface modified. This evaluation is not applicable to hydroxyapatite (nano) composed of needle-shaped particles. The limits of 10% nHAp for toothpaste and 0.465% nHAp for mouthwash correspond to 64.5% and 3% nanoXIM·CarePaste, respectively.
This SCCS Final Opinion applies only to the nanoXIM·CarePaste product manufactured by FLUIDINOVA and referred to in the studies.
The Final Opinion on Hydroxyapatite (nano) can be downloaded from the SCCS website, here.
We congratulate NanoPAT partner FLUIDINOVA for this awesome achievement!!
