Washington D.C. [USA], Nov 25 (ANI): Applying sunscreen to your body may be good in your skin, but nanoparticles might be damaging to your skin.
A study by researchers at the University of Queensland and South Australia shows that nanoparticles of zinc oxide that penetrate the skin do not penetrate the skin and do not replicate after cellular toxicity.
Research, published in the Dermatology Research Journal, rejects many claims and increases consumers' beliefs about nanoparticulated sunscreen safety.
Researchers have said that the myths about sunscreen toxicity have been taken after previous animal research, that zinc sunblock sunscreen skin absorption is much higher than in human studies.
"Concerns about the zinc oxide nanoparticles were absorbed in the epidermis, including serious damage to DNA damage," said Michael Roberts, chief researcher.
The toxicity ties were consumed by consumers, and people feared that people could diminish the use of their sun, the echo of the 2017 Sun Rescue Surveillance Council. Sunscreen reduces the number of people that could be safe every day.
Roberts and his researchers analyzed the safety of repetition of zinc oxide nanoparticles applied to five volunteers from 20 to 30 years old. Volunteers applied ZnO nanoparticles for six hours per hour for five consecutive days.
Using the excellent image methods, the researchers maintained the nanoparticles on the skin layers and did not cause any cell.
"These discoveries help us to improve the consumer's confidence in these products and at the same time achieve better solar protection. Skin damage caused by skin cancer and sun lengths is a great deal more than sunscreens," said Roberts.
