Perhaps think twice here. as titanium dioxide has a variety of uses, as it is odorless and absorbent. This mineral is found in many products, ranging from paint to food to cosmetics. and concern has arisen from studies that have pointed to titanium dioxide as a carcinogen and photocatalyst. Personally, it's safe unless you are a worker in an industrial setting and breath vast amounts, but I think any form form of mineral or mineral extract, including titanium dioxide, that we should be concerned about is ultrafine or nano particles.

I don't live in a smog-laden area. So, this detergent additive is something that I would not need. However, if the industry determines that we do indeed need this additive, would that mean that the alternatives industry would start marketing titanium dioxide-free detergent at a significantly higher price?

I am going to pass as I would not trust it. We don't know what kind of side effects it might have for us.

This sounds just great and the "unscented" part is for me a deal maker, not a deal breaker. I can't stand perfumes in detergents. I can't even stand Tide's supposedly unscented powder - it is full of perfumes enough to gag a maggot . I do, however, alas, agree that caution is needed.

Titanium dioxide, along with zinc, are the safest ingredients in sunscreen (not the oxybenzones). So I don't think there's anything dangerous about the detergent.

Innovative but I have 2 concerns: 1. Is it sold in the United States?
2. Is it affordable?
