Figures and Tables from this paper

The association between phthalate exposure and atopic dermatitis with a discussion of phthalate induced secretion of interleukin-1β and thymic stromal lymphopoietin

TLDR
The results from published studies are controversial and inconclusive, and there is a need for prospective studies to clarify the possible pathogenic role of phthalate diesters in atopic dermatitis and the associated health risk.

Inhalation and Dermal Uptake of Particle and Gas-Phase Phthalates-A Human Exposure Study.

TLDR
Differences in uptake of gas and particles are demonstrated and the importance of considering the deposited dose in particle uptake studies is highlighted.

Combined Toxicological Effects of Di (2-Ethylhexyl) Phthalate and UV-B Irradiation through Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress—Tight Junction Disruption in Human HaCaT Keratinocytes

TLDR
The data suggest that nontoxic DEHP and UV-B irradiation regulated ER stress and epidermal TJ disruption with the induction of apoptosis activation and the secretion of proinflammatory cytokines such as interleukin 1 beta (IL-1β) and IL-6 in human keratinocytes.

Endocrine-disrupting chemicals and skin manifestations

TLDR
Mechanisms, which EDCs use to induce skin disorders are complicated, and involve the interference of endogenous hormones and most importantly the activation of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor signal pathway.

Critical Review on the Presence of Phthalates in Food and Evidence of Their Biological Impact

TLDR
An overview of phthalates is provided, pointing out the health and legal issues related to their occurrence in several types of food and beverage, and their association to several human diseases is still under debate.

Phthalates in Baby Skin Care Products

TLDR
In baby skin care products, levels of the 17 phthalates tested are low overall, but occasional products may contain higher phthalate levels.

ESTIMATED EXPOSURE TO PHTHALATES IN COSMETICS AND RISK ASSESSMENT

  • H. KooB. Lee
  • Medicine
    Journal of toxicology and environmental health. Part A
  • 2004
TLDR
The data suggest that estimated exposure to phthalates in the cosmetics mentioned are relatively small, however, total exposure levels from several sources may be greater and require further investigation.

In vitro absorption of some o-phthalate diesters through human and rat skin.

TLDR
Although differences were noted between species, the absolute rates of absorption measured indicate that the phthalate esters are slowly absorbed through both human and rat skin.

Phthalate esters reveal skin-sensitizing activity of phenethyl isothiocyanate in mice.

Di-(2-ethylhexyl) Phthalate Enhances Atopic Dermatitis-Like Skin Lesions in Mice

TLDR
Results indicate that DEHP enhances atopic dermatitis-like skin lesions at hundred-fold lower levels than the no observed adverse effect level determined on histologic changes in the liver of rodents.

Dermal absorption of phthalate diesters in rats.

Urinary excretion of phthalates and paraben after repeated whole-body topical application in humans.

TLDR
Urinary concentrations of BP and metabolites of DEP and DBP after topical application are investigated and all 26 subjects showed increased excretion of MEP, MBP and BP following topical application.
