Nanoscience Implementation Progress – Cosmetics!


Nanotechnology implementation in all fields of our life is growing up offering us new improved products – like easy to clean and wrinkle resistant articles, lighter car bumpers, stain repellent clothes, radiation resistant sunscreens with UV protection …

Yes unbelievable, but true!

Radiation resistant sunscreens based on nano particles have more advantages.

The two primary nano ingredients, added in the sunscreen are:

Titanium Dioxide (TiO2)

Zinc Oxide (ZnO)

The main benefit of them is reflecting the UV light from the sun, which causes skin cancer

The scientists admit that the nanoparticles in the sunscreens don’t harm the skin and body

So in the fight against skin cancer, the Nanotechnology with the nanoparticles in the composition of the sunscreens are definitely the winner.

Simon Jamess, cientist at the Australian Synchotron concludes : “More work is needed before we understand the details of how this process occurs inside the body, but we at least now know the immune system has the capacity to degrade zinc oxide nanoparticles.”

This current published examinations of opinions

It remain to us follow the opinions and tests of the scientists and gather more information to protect ourselves.
