Having discovered from fellow bloggers yesterday that Titanium Dioxide MAY be the cause of my recent flare, I'd like to throw my net wide and ask if any of you Lupies have found other chemical to be the cause of your flare. I used a teeth whitening kit last week which has floored me,I've since found out that my Nivea sun block contains it too. I've just found a site called the Green Stop (and no i don't work for them) that sells sunblock without Titanium Peroxide in. I've also found a few research papers that suggest these nano particles may cause inflammatory responses.
I realise we're all different with different triggers but I don't know where to start with the chemical list and would like a chance to explore your experiences first. I'm hoping this knowledge will then lead me onto my own chemical causes. Has any one found certain cosmetics or cleaning products containing 'specific' chemicals to cause a flare? I want to start experimenting and maybe even go a bit greener!
Your help would be much appreciated
