I plan to use loose powder with ingridient: talc, Mica, Kaolin, Corn Mays) Starch, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Stearate, Silica, Dimethicone, Isopropyl Myristate, Dimethicone Hydrogen, Methicone, Aluminum Hydroxide, Quaternium-15, Aroma, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Dimethicone, Isopropyl Myristate, Dimethicone Hydrogen, Methicone, Aluminum Hydroxide, Quaternium-15, Aroma, Glycyrrhiza Glabra Licorice) Root Extract. For use it may be once or twice a week. And even then only a few hours. Can this harm my fetus? Thanks.
Hello Dian, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.
Pregnancy can be a happy time, but it can also be a confusing period, especially in terms of beauty. Although it is less well known, some beauty products have the potential to have noisy side effects. Fortunately, the FDA has already made several categorization of product safety for use by pregnant women.
Titanium dioxide has not been classified in the FDA category, but the FDA recommends that it still be able to use minerals such as titanium dioxide by pregnant women, because according to the FDA there is suggestive evidence of the risk of these chemicals, but it has not been fully proven.
However, through Morris's water maze test experiments showed that exposure to titanium dioxide can significantly affect the brain, disrupt learning and memory in offspring. It's best during pregnancy, you avoid beauty products that contain chemicals that can affect your fetus. If you still want to consult further about this, it never hurts you to visit a specialist obstetric and gynecologist.
Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you.
