Zinc oxide while Breastfeeding Safe
CAS Number: 1314-13-2
It is used topically as an astringent and skin protector, very often together with small amounts of Ferric Oxide to form Calamine (see specific info). It is a product compatible with breastfeeding according to WHO Essential Medicine’s List - 2002.It is also used in dental hygiene products and cosmetics. Widely used for skin protection of the diaper area in infants. Because of the small dose used and poor absorption into plasma of most topical dermatological preparations, excretion into breastmilk in significant amount appears to be unlikely. Do not apply on the breast to prevent infant ingestion; otherwise, wash it off thoroughly with water before the next breast feed.

Some animal studies suggest that maternal exposure to titanium dioxide nanoparticles during pregnancy and lactation alters offspring hippocampal mRNA BAX and Bcl-2 levels, induces apoptosis and decreases neurogenesis. But dosage was significantly higher than daily possible exposure to humans.Note:
Study and data for tropical use only. Inhalation concerns in powder or spray products.Warning: Tropical usage in breast area shall be avoided to prevent the Titanium Dioxide passing orally in Infants. Titanium dioxide is possibly carcinogenic to humans. Titanium dioxide can be drastically more harmful if used as powder or spray as risk of inhalation can increase significantly.
