| Ask a Question

UV Protection with this sunscreen ingredient made for your cosmetics and lotions.  This is a hydrophobic (dispersible in oil; a.k.a fat loving), coated with Dimethicone zinc oxide which is compatible with all oil phases.  It is recommeded for a loose powder formulation because it will tend to not absorb the moisture in the air over time which would result in a clumpy powder.

    Recommended to easily disperse into a Water in Oil emulsion (typical of a commercial/high performance lotion which has more oil - including silicone oils.

    • Ingredients: Zinc Oxide (77497), Triethoxycaprylysilane.
    • All Z-Cotes are microfine zinc oxides with a particle size of less than 0.2 microns (200 nm). As a result, these Z-Cotes are transparent, non-staining, non-greasy when applied to the skin by using them alone or mixing them in cosmetic formulas yet still offer both broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection.

      We recommend Z-Cote for sun protection. However, be reminded that if you make a formal claim as to SPF protection of a product which you sell, you are considered by the FDA to be selling an over-the-counter drug. The FDA would require you to conduct independent testing of your product to confirm the SPF rating which you are marketing.
