Titanium Dioxide Nanoparticles: The Toxic Effects On Human Health

With the rising usage of nanoparticles (NPs) in personal care products, the safety of titanium dioxide nanoparticles (TiO2), has been called into question.

Titanium dioxide is used as a pigment to create a white base in your makeup, toothpaste etc (usually in the form of nanoparticles). There has been growing concern about the potential impacts on human health as well as our ecosystems from our use of titanium dioxide.

According to several studies, NPs can build up in the lungs, stomach, intestines, and other organs following ingestion or absorption. Moreover, glucose and lipid homoeostasis are also thrown off by the presence of NPs in the body and could lead to diabetes & other liver & blood sugar diseases.

Titanium Dioxide Nanoparticles in Cosmetics – Should You Be Concerned?

For many years,experts have been investigating the effects of TiO2 nanoparticles on the human body. Both the exposure to it and its toxicity within the human body have been extensively researched and studied. 

The harmful effects of TiO2 nanoparticles within the human body include disrupting cell cycles, contraction of nuclear membranes (affecting the cells ability to do its job), and apoptosis (a type of cell death).

Titanium dioxide has also been shown toinduce DNA damage

Onestudy on rats found that TiO2 nanoparticles disturbed glucose and lipid homeostasis. According to the study, TiO2 NPs can have a detrimental effect on the body causing liver inflammation in young rats, as well as heart damage

The Greater The Exposure, The Higher The Risk 

When absorbed or digested in tiny amounts for a prolonged period, TiO2 nanoparticles can have an adverse effect on the intestinal mucosa, the nervous system, the heart, and other internal organs, increasing the risk of developing a variety of illnesses, tumours, and speeding up the progression of existing cancer processes.
