Natural UV Protection
Also known as Zinc white, calamine, philosopher's wool, Chinese white, flowers of zinc.
DESCRIPTION: Zinc oxide is a natural compound of zinc and oxygen in the form of very small crystals. It appears as a white, odourless powder with high opacity.
APPLICATION: The use of zinc oxide as a face powder goes back to 1866 when it replaced the previously used and harmful agents, lead, arsenic and bismuth salts. To this date, zinc oxide is widely used as a powder in dermatological formulations. However, zinc oxide is also used as a pigment in paints, hence the alternative name "zinc white".
EFFECT: Zinc oxide is a topical skin product that is used as a protective coating for mild skin irritations and abrasions. It acts as a natural UV absorber. It reflects UV rays and protects against sunburn. In general, it helps to prevent damaging effects on the skin due to external influences and healing of chapped skin and diaper rash. It has mild astringent and some antiseptic properties.
