Zinc oxide is an odorless, white powder that is naturally occurring in the mineral zincite.
Zinc oxide is considered to be non-irritating, non-allergenic, and non-comedogenic.
In skin protectant applications, like a diaper cream, zinc oxide forms a protective barrier on the skin to help treat and prevent various skin conditions including minor abrasions, burns, chafing, diaper rash, insect bites, and skin irritation.
It has also been used for centuries in deodorant products as it helps to prevent unpleasant odors.
Our Zinc Oxide Powder is pharmaceutical grade which means it is certified by the United States Pharmacopeia and subject to FDA regulation. It has to be 99.99% pure to meet their strict criteria. Only 5% of the entire skin care industry can meet these high standards! We’re also proud to say it’s made and packaged in the USA.
We will only sell non-nano zinc oxide, which means it will not enter the blood stream or absorb into the cells. Instead, it sits on the skin to form a protective barrier against the elements and outside factors. This also greatly reduces the risk of allergic reaction and skin irritation.
With our Zinc Oxide, you can make DIY skin care products including body butters, deodorant, shampoo, mineral makeup and baby powder.
