Zinc ricinoleate complex review

This Zinc ricinoleate complex works great for my homemade deodorant.

Zinc Ricinoleate

Thank you Essentially Natural for a great product. I've been looking all over for Zinc to put in my shampoo, when I stumbled on to your website and I am elated with all your great products. I am now using Zinc Ricinoleate in my Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Spray; what a great product! It is so easy to use. I am very happy with my purchase, thank you. And thank you so much for a very user friendly website and hassle free purchase.


Would like to know how to use this product. All the Deodorant recipes refer to the dry pellets. Could not find a liquid recipe anywhere.

I have stumbled across a recipe for a roll-on deodrant that uses Zinc Ricinoleate and Zinc PCA (zinc salt), which I simply substituted for Zinc Oxide, together with skin loving oils and BTMS, to that emulsify into a lovely liquid - ideal for roll-on bottles. If you have wondered how to use the product, well, now you have an idea to work with. Zinc Ricinoleate is said to effectively traps and absorbs odor molecules - so ideal for deodrant formulating purposes...Have fun trying it for yourself - I sure am!
