About This Product

Zinc oxide is the chemical compound of zinc and oxygen, available for cosmetic purposes as a loose, white powder. Zinc oxide is insoluble in water and alcohol under normal conditions, but solubility increases when the pH falls below 6.

In cosmetics, zinc oxide is used for its anti-inflammatory, astringent, anti-irritant, antimicrobial and drying properties. It is proven in the care and protection of sensitive baby skin. Cosmetics with zinc oxide are particularly effective against oily and blemished skin. Zinc oxide is also important as a white covering pigment in decorative cosmetics.

Non-micronized. Used in cream, lotion and ointment formulations to help protect the skin from sunburn or ease itching. Or as an ingredient in baby powder, barrier creams and anti-septic ointments. It is the main component of calamine powder.
