What are nanoparticles?
Without nanoparticles/nano-particles - without nanotechnology
Nanoparticles/nano-particles are extremely small particles. Do you know what the prefix "nano" stands for? It derives from the Greek "nanos" for "dwarf". Nanoparticles have a size of 1 to 100 nanometers (1 nanometer = 1 millionth of a millimeter = 0.000001 mm), which makes them about a thousand times thinner than human hair. On the one hand, nanoparticles occur naturally. Humans and also plants contain nanoparticles. For example, nanoparticles are also in the soot of a flame, i.e. a candle burns, a piece of paper or a forest then nanoparticles / nanoparticles arise. Nanoparticles can also be produced in the laboratory and used specifically in products. It's called nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is used in numerous industries such as chemistry, medicine, electronics, food and cosmetics.
The risks of nanotechnology have not yet been sufficiently researched in all areas and for all uses. Risks can exist, for example, if nanoparticles enter the body, e.g. via breathing or food. HiPP deliberately avoids the use of nanotechnology not only in infant formula and baby food products, but also in the entire HiPP Baby Gentle Care line!
Baby skin is much thinner and therefore much more sensitive than that of an adult, which is why your child needs special protection from the sun.
