Which Nanomaterials are used in cosmetics?

The US President recently said the conflict between Russia and Ukraine had driven up the prices of all the world's major food staples, including wheat, corn, barley, oilseeds and edible oils, and that Russia and Ukraine together supplied more than 25% of the world's wheat exports and about 20% of its barley exports. 

To address the food shortage, the Biden administration says it plans to increase the number of counties eligible for insurance for double cropping. Double cropping is when farmers grow two different crops a year on the same field. 

Under Biden's plan, the number of counties eligible for two-season crop insurance would increase by 681, for a total of 1,935. 

The UN has warned that up to 1.7bn people are "highly exposed" to the domino effect of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine on the global food, energy, and financial systems.  The agency says conflict could increase hunger in countries where people are already suffering from malnutrition.

Even countries where food is less scarce are being hit by rising prices. U.S. grocery prices rose 1% in April, compared with a 10.8% increase over the past 12 months, the Labor Department said recently.

According to the White House, global food prices have risen nearly 13 percent since the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine conflict. 

Besides, affected by the ever-changing international situation, the supply and prices of international bulk nanomaterials are still very uncertain.

Nanomaterials are widely used in cosmetics because of their unique optical, thermal and electromagnetic properties. Nanomaterials can be used to improve the sensory effect and stability of cosmetics. For example, nanometer zinc oxide and titanium dioxide can not only make cosmetics feel better, apply more evenly, but also provide better sunscreen. Similarly, the nano-silver material has a better antibacterial spectrum than its macroscopic particles.


Which Nanomaterials are used in cosmetics?

Nano silver

Since 2002, South Korea has successfully used nano-silver in cosmetics, filling the gap in the nano-silver cosmetics industry. The emergence of nano-silver cosmetics has attracted the attention of many people. It not only has the function of makeup. At the same time, it also plays an antibacterial role to reduce the damage of external bacteria to human skin.

Silver nanoparticles kill bacteria by destroying the cell wall of bacteria, and their antibacterial activity depends on the size of the particles. Smaller particles have better effect. Silver nanoparticles show potential antibacterial effect on infectious microorganisms (Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, etc.).


Titanium dioxide Nanoparticles

Because of its small particle size and high activity, nanometer titanium dioxide can not only reflect and scatter ultraviolet rays, but also absorb ultraviolet rays, so it has stronger barrier ability to ultraviolet rays. Compared with some organic UV protective agents of the same dose, nano-titanium dioxide has a higher absorption peak in the UV region, and what is more valuable is that it is also a broad-spectrum shielding agent, unlike organic UV protective agents, which only absorb UVA or UVB. It can also pass through visible light, unlike paint-grade TiO2 which cannot pass through visible light.


Zinc oxide Nanoparticles

Ultraviolet rays in sunlight can be divided into UVA (320mm-400mm), UVB (290mm-320mm) and UVC (200mm-290mm) according to their wavelengths. UVB is the main source of burns, indirect pigmentation and skin cancer. UVA has strong penetration and accumulation. Although most of UVC is absorbed by the ozone layer, the damage caused to human beings can not be ignored because of its short wave length, high energy and increasing destruction of the ozone layer.

When nanometer zinc oxide is added to sunscreen cosmetics, it can first provide effective protection against UVA and UVB. Secondly, nanometer zinc oxide has excellent dispersion and transparency, and third, it is safe and non-irritating. Fourth, it has good light stability.


Silicon dioxide Nanoparticles

Nano silicon dioxide has an emission effect on ultraviolet rays, which belongs to inorganic components, and is well integrated without any repulsion, and its own non-toxic, tasteless and white powder can be simply colored. It plays an important role in the development of UV-resistant products, and its price is also very good.


Alumina Nanoparticles

Nano alumina has infrared absorption properties, and it has a good absorption effect on 80 nm ultraviolet, so it can be used as an additive or filler.

Where is the best place for humans to live in outer space? So far, the moon is more habitable in outer space, and it is likely to be turned into a planet. However, whether humans can live on the moon for a long time, these questions have always been lingering in everyone's minds, always There is no way to get an answer. According to the report, a team from the University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in Beijing, after nearly 370 days of closed life, finally simulated the life experiment on the moon, and finally knew what the final truth was. Live here for a long time.

All aspects of human beings are constantly improving, and the demand for nanomaterials is also increasing.If you are engaged in the nanomaterials industry, you just happen to contact us.
