Zinc Oxide is a fluffy, white powder. We offer several versions: Lo Micron, Z-cote and High Micron.
Lo Micron and Z-cote are relatively translucent. High Micron is a larger particle size (passing through 325 mesh) and is a better option for cosmetics which require more coverage and density.
Zinc Oxide's purpose is to protect the skin from UV and other damage. Commonly, it is found in ointments, creams, and lotion. Zinc oxide is a natural mineral.

What does "high micron" mean? How does this relate to it being nano or not?
It is not nano. High Micron means it is a larger particle size than our Low Micron. Neither is so small as to be "nano". Some people like higher micron because it is more whitening and gives greater coverage or opacity. Lower micron will be a little more translucent.
