Our Zinc Oxide is non nano (natural) and is not absorbed through the skin. It's probably the only safe sun protection available. With a particle size of less than 0.2 microns and oil solubility, it makes a great choice for adding to your sunscreens, salves, lip balms, and mineral makeup formulations at a usage range of 2% - 25%.
Why we love it: zinc oxide is the perfect base for making your own natural sunscreen.
USES & BENEFITS
Recommended for loose powder formulations as it does not absorb moisture from the air, which would otherwise cause clumping
Zinc oxide is easily dispersed into a water in oil emulsion (such as an oil-heavy cream) and is considered very gentle for the skin
