Zinc oxide, also known as zinc oxide red seal.
Soluble in oil, so add to the heated oil phase or oil phase of formulations.
Would never use a nano-powder for topical first aid, for starters. Mixed with a glycerine or castor oil base, it makes a great, water-resistant cream for treating "greasy foot" on horses, a fungal infection that happens just above the hoof in persistently wet weather, to susceptible horses.
the product Zinc powder is a good purchase & option & prefer to the other with paraffin in .
would have liked to find a 100% organic cream base to use just pure such as Dr Konopka's or so on.
i use my own moisturisers Baby Siberica for the zinc which is expensive.
have to find a good cream to mix the powder.
the one i sue is excellent but expensive but one likes a moisturiser 100 % organic throughout.
generally i find all natural health products in south africa very undermined by govt & various other.
several effective products from overseas have already been banned here because the products were abused to make less effective.
this is a general observation not with the zinc powder but anything effective does not last long in the country is a problem .
