In March 2020, Ethical Consumer viewed Lavera's website for its policy on the use of nanoparticles.

The company produced sunscreen, which was an area in which nanotechnology was very common. The following statement was found:

"Since the enactment of the EU Regulation on Cosmetic Products in 2013, particles between 1 and 100 nm must be declared* under the term "nano" in the ingredient list of sun protection products, e.g. "titanium dioxide (nano)"*. Lavera sun protection is 100% in keeping with EU and cosmetics regulations and fulfills all conditions regarding usage of nano-particles."

Ethical Consumer also viewed the ingredients lists of the company's sunscreen products and found that no nano ingredients were listed.

The company was therefore assumed not to be including nanoparticles in its sunscreen products.
