The American Mineralogical Society (AMS) has issued a report that says there is a connection between mineral powders and the condition known as keratoconus.
The condition, which is characterized by the loss of pigment in the nail and is often seen in women, is a result of a deficiency of a mineral called keratin.
The AMS says it’s not just women who are affected by keratoconus.
A study conducted in the U.K. found that more than half of people with keratocolitis also had a high percentage of mineral powder in their nails.
The study found that people with low keratin levels were at increased risk for keratotic dermal disorders, including keratitis externa, keratosis, keratinosis, and keratolysis.
The study found there was a link between the presence of keratin in the nails and keratinolysis, which results in the formation of scar tissue in the skin.
Dermatologist Dr. Sarah Smith told the Associated Press that while keratogenic dermal disorder is a condition that occurs in all ages and can be caused by many things, it has increased in the last decade.
“The number of people who are being diagnosed with it has skyrocketed over the last 10 years,” Smith said.
“The condition can be inherited from the parents, the parents can be affected by certain factors that they don’t have, and the parents are the ones that are going to develop keratocysts.”
Smith added that it is important to note that there is no proven treatment for keratin disease.
There is a growing body of research that suggests that there are many possible factors that can increase the risk for the disease.
