INTRODUCTION Products using the antimicrobial properties of silver nanoparticles (Ag-nps) may be found in health and consumer products that routinely contact skin. OBJECTIVES This study was designed to assess the potential cytotoxicity of Ag-nps in human epidermal keratinocytes (HEKs) and their inflammatory and penetrating potential into porcine skin in vivo. MATERIALS AND METHODS We used eight different Ag-nps in this study [unwashed/uncoated (20, 50, and 80 nm particle diameter), washed… CONTINUE READING
