Concept Ii Solscents Broad Spectrum Spf 15 Vanilla Silk Breastfeeding
Most health expert recommend six month of exclusive breastfeeding but statics suggest that numbers are not good, almost 95% mothers start breastfeeding but this number drops to 40% in first three month and further it drops to 15% till fifth month. Sometime its due to need of medication usage. Because of these statics its important to provide good information on safety of drugs in breastfeeding so that it can be improved when possible. In this FAQ sheet we will discuss about exposure to Concept Ii Solscents Broad Spectrum Spf 15 Vanilla Silk while breastfeeding. We will also discuss about common side effects and warnings associated with Concept Ii Solscents Broad Spectrum Spf 15 Vanilla Silk.

Brief: Sunscreen

Is Concept Ii Solscents Broad Spectrum Spf 15 Vanilla Silk safe to use while breastfeeding? Can it interfere with growth and development of my kid?

Concept Ii Solscents Broad Spectrum Spf 15 Vanilla Silk low risk for breastfeeding
Task to evaluate the effect of Concept Ii Solscents Broad Spectrum Spf 15 Vanilla Silk is quite difficult as it consist mainly 3 ingredients. However we have analyzed all 3 active ingredients and have reached a conclusion that Concept Ii Solscents Broad Spectrum Spf 15 Vanilla Silk poses low risk while breastfeeding. Below we have summarized our analysis of each 3 ingredients.

Avobenzone and Breastfeeding

Safe

Not much study has been done on effects of topical usage of Avobenzone during breast feeding however it is known to penetrate the skin in very limited quantity. Its not very likely to have adverse effects in breastfed infants.

Note: Study and data for tropical use only, Breakdown product causes relatively high rates of skin allergy hence stabilization is required.

Warning: Tropical usage in breast area shall be avoided to prevent the Avobenzone passing orally in Infants.

Octisalate and Breastfeeding

Low Risk

Octyl salicylate is an oil soluble chemical sunscreen agent that absorbs UVB radiation. It does not protect against UVA. Octyl salicylate is used to augment the UVB protection in a sunscreen. Salicylates are weak UVB absorbers and they are generally used in combination with other UV filters

Octisalate rarely causes allergies in tropical usage. Not much study has been done on effects of topical usage of Octisalate during breast feeding however it is known to penetrate the skin hence itís better to use other alternatives.

FDA study found blood levels 10 times above cutoff for systemic exposure, skin penetration in lab studies has been observed

Note: Study and data for tropical use only

Warning: Tropical usage in breast area shall be avoided to prevent the Octisalate passing orally in Infants.

Octocrylene and Breastfeeding

Safe

Based on the current available safety data, octocrylene used as a UV filter in cosmetic products at a concentration of 10% can be considered as safe. There was no evidence of any endocrine disruption potential from experimental studies which demonstrated no adverse effects on reproductive (e.g. oestrus cycle, epididymal and testicular sperm parameters) and developmental parameters. Effects on thyroid reported in repeated toxicity studies conducted in rats at very high doses are species?specific and not relevant considering the doses at which octocrylene is used in human.

Four studies on the transdermal absorption of octocrylene are available in the scientific literature, and an additional study is available in ECHA summaries of safety data. Dermal absorption studies of octocrylene showed that most octocrylene concentrations are found in the stratum corneum and that very few quantities are found in the epidermis (0.4%) and in the receptor fluid (<0.05%). In vivo, a very recent study in human volunteers showed systemic exposure to octocrylene with maximal concentrations ranging from 2.9 to 7.8 ng/mL under indoor maximal use conditions. Octocrylene has been found at very low amounts in human milk, and some metabolites of octocrylene were primarily detected in urine of volunteers using sunscreen products.

No systemic effects were reported after dermal exposure to octocrylene in rabbits at very high dose (534 mg/kg bw/day) compared with those used in cosmetic products. After oral exposure, effects on liver and thyroid were reported in a study conducted in rats at high doses (340 and 1085 mg/kg bw/day in males). These effects were investigated in an additional mechanistic study which showed that effects on thyroid were indirect and due to hepatic enzyme induction potential of octocrylene in rats at very high oral doses.

Based on available animal data, octocrylene does not induce developmental or teratogenic effects. In an extended one?generation reproductive toxicity study, only rats treated with the highest dose of octocrylene via oral route showed a decrease in the number of implantation sites and consequently a low number of pups. This very high dose of 550 mg/kg bw/day cannot be considered to be relevant to the dermal use of octocrylene as a cosmetic ingredient. Moreover, no other effects on male and female fertility and reproductive parameters such as oestrus cycle, epididymal and testicular sperm parameters were observed in all groups tested. Regarding pups, no effects on sexual and neurodevelopmental parameters were observed.

Note: Study and data for tropical use only

Warning: Tropical usage in breast area shall be avoided to prevent the Octocrylene passing orally in Infants. In some rare cases it can cause skin allergy.
