9/15/2014 Update: We had a price increase from the manufacturer and were forced to raise our prices on the bulk product.
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.
The average Micron Size for this powder = 44

This high micron zinc oxide works great in my powder and cream concealer formulations. It gives excellent coverage at a great price!
This powder creates a great coverage and i love its creamy texture.
I started making my son's bum balm because I wasn't happy with what was out there - this made all the difference and was easy to work with! It was creamy in an all oil/butter and mixed in nicely.
Calms, sooths, and protects the skin from the sun. Plus adds very good medium to barely high coverage (at most) to any formula before titanium dioxide or pigments are even added. I knew I needed this for my formulary and I'm so happy to have it at an affordable price. Thank TKBT! :-)
Which zinc oxide is better for mineral foundations?Which is more creamier? TKB Responds: creamier? Probably the higher micron zincs. Best? It depends on how much coverage you want. The higher micron is for heavier, more opaque coverage.
