  • 1. Are Nano Particles in Sunscreen Endangering Our Health? Presented By: Patricia Candrea and Megan Chi
  • 2. What Are Nano Particles? <ul><li>Named for their small size. </li></ul><ul><li>Nanometer: billionth of a meter. </li></ul><ul><li>Roughly 100,000 times smaller that the width of a human hair. </li></ul><ul><li>Assembled through rearranging the atoms. </li></ul><ul><li>Smaller than anything that is put into commercial products. </li></ul>
  • 3. Where are Nano Particles? <ul><li>Food </li></ul><ul><li>Cosmetics </li></ul><ul><li>Sunscreen </li></ul><ul><li>Clothing </li></ul><ul><li>Toys </li></ul><ul><li>And other everyday products </li></ul>
  • 4. THE DANGEROUS SIDE
  • 5. What Makes them Dangerous? <ul><li>Big Problem: common substances behave in uncommon ways. </li></ul><ul><li>No one really knows what they do inside the body or environment. </li></ul><ul><li>Have an enormous surface to volume ratio making them biologically active. </li></ul>
  • 6. Which Nano Particles Are in Sunscreen? <ul><li>Titanium Dioxide </li></ul><ul><li>Zinc Oxide </li></ul>Titanium Dioxide Zinc Oxide
  • 7. Why Is Titanium Dioxide Dangerous? <ul><li>Link to Various Disorders like: </li></ul><ul><li>Autistic Disorders </li></ul><ul><li>Epilepsy </li></ul><ul><li>Alzheimer’s Disease </li></ul><ul><li>When injected into pregnant mice it caused gene changes. </li></ul>
  • 8. Why Is Zinc Oxide Dangerous? <ul><li>Can kill important brain stem cells in mice (injected with zinc oxide). </li></ul><ul><li>Toxic to colon cells even in small amounts . </li></ul>
  • 9. Why Is It Dangerous to Have Nano Particles In Sunscreen? <ul><li>Penetrate the skin leaching into the bloodstream, tissues, cells, and organs. </li></ul><ul><li>Photo Active: Produce free radicals causing DNA damage to human skin cells when exposed to UV light. </li></ul><ul><li>Can cress into human placentas from mother to unborn fetuses. </li></ul>
  • 10. Why Add Nano Particles? <ul><li>Makes the sun-blocking ingredients go on “cosmetically clear” instead of white. </li></ul>
  • 11. THE SAFE SIDE
  • 12. Why Are They Safe? <ul><li>Organic, natural occurring nanoparticles </li></ul><ul><li>Ivy nanoparticles are more uniform than the metal-based nanoparticles, and have unique material properties, which help enhance the absorption and scattering of light, and serve as a sun-blocker. </li></ul>
  • 13. Ivy Nano Particle Properties <ul><li>Easily biodegradable </li></ul><ul><li>Less toxic to mammalian cells </li></ul><ul><li>More adhesive </li></ul>
  • 14. Are They Dangerous? <ul><li>To date, the current weight of evidence suggests that titanium dioxide and zinc oxide nanoparticles do not reach viable skin cells; they remain on the surface of the skin and outer layer of the skin. </li></ul><ul><li>Nano particles of zinc and titanium do not penetrate the skin enough to pose a potential hazard </li></ul>
  • 15. Are the Dangers of Sunscreen Related to Nano Particles? <ul><li>The Biggest sunscreen safety hazards are not related to nanoparticles. </li></ul><ul><li>They are the chemicals, which are absorbed by the skin and end up the in the blood stream. </li></ul><ul><li>Stick to the sunscreens that have titanium dioxide and zinc. </li></ul>
  • 24. <ul><li>Distribution of Nano Particles (after application on surface of skin) in the Subcutaneous tissue layer… </li></ul><ul><li>After 8 Hours… </li></ul>
  • 25. <ul><li>After 20 Hours .. </li></ul>
  • 26. Interesting Facts <ul><li>The FDA has known for a decade that almost half the sunscreens used contain substances that accelerate the growth of skin cancer cells. </li></ul><ul><li>France, Germany, the U.K., and European Parliament have begun to require everything from safety testing and mandatory labeling of the nanoparticles. </li></ul>
  • 27. Environmental Impacts <ul><li>In a study bacteria’s cell walls were damage after adding 10 to 100 milligrams per liter of the nanosubstance. </li></ul><ul><li>According to the study the nanosubstance damaged the bacteria’s functionality. </li></ul><ul><li>Microbes uses include: removing amonia from waste water treatment plants, cleaning up toxic waste and reduce phosphorus in lakes. </li></ul>
