Rapidly enters your body

When you breathe air containing 1,4-dioxane, almost all of it will rapidly enter your body through your lungs. Almost all of the 1,4-dioxane in your drinking water will rapidly enter your body through the digestive tract.

Studies have found that some 1,4-dioxane can pass through skin when applied with certain preparations such as lotions, but much of it will evaporate before it can be absorbed. .
Rapidly leaves your bodyOnce in your body, 1,4-dioxane is broken down into other chemicals. These other chemicals rapidly leave your body in the urine.
