Zinc oxide powder is a fine white-coloured powder that is great for use as an effective sunscreen. It is a very broad spectrum UVA and UVB reflector and is completely photo-stable. When used as an ingredient in sunscreen, because zinc oxide is not absorbed into the skin, it is non-irritating, non-allergenic, and non-comedogenic.

The product also works well in mineral makeup due to its astringent properties as it works to keep excess oils from forming on the surface. As such, it is sometimes used in acne treatments. The powder is not soluble in water which is an added benefit when acting as a sunscreen and in mineral makeup. 

This powder contains uncoated, non-nano, micronised particles that are not absorbed into the skin. Particle size is approximately 4.83 sqm/g as measured by the surface area.
