    Thank you for sharing Such, but if the concern is its use in sunscreens, most of them use it in micronized form..

    I'm sure the damage is also seen at the micrometer scale. I have some amoxicillin pills here and the scale is probably even finer than that. Silicon dioxide goes through the skin so I don't see why titanium wouldn't.

    There's a lot of aspirin with Titanium dioxide in it. I know I took a whole bottle before I read the ingredients.

    I'm very concerned about titanium dioxide in sunscreen, it's very common. Obviously I don't use that poison, but I see my relatives using it throughout summer.
