Fullerenes Hit the Market

It is common knowledge that L’Oreal is one of the biggest nano related patent holders, and various nanomaterials have been used in the cosmetics industry for a long time, whether intentionally or not. The UK’s Sunday Times Beauty and Style section recommends a fullerene based antioxidant, perhaps providing an outlet for a small fraction of the 40 tons a year that Frontier Carbon Corporation were planning to produce.

Zelens day and night creams contain Fullerene C60, a powerful free-radical-fighter, as well as a cocktail of other antioxidants such as vitamins C and E. Day cream, £135, and night cream, £150, from Selfridges; 0870 837 7377

  2. In response to Dr. Enwrights comment, how does he know this fullerene compound causes alzeimhers? Is this supposition or is there evidence? I am interested from a scientific perspective and also because I was planning to buy some of this stuff tommorrow!
