Zinc Oxide

Zinc oxide is recognised as providing outstanding protection for the skin against harmful UV light. Zinc oxide covers more of the UV spectrum than any other sunscreen. Sports people often use a zinc oxide bases sun screen, and until nanotechnology was developed the zinc oxide appeared on the skin as a thick white areas due to its insolubility. However, harnessing nanotechnology zinc oxide can be produced in particles 1000 times smaller than normal zinc oxide. This means it can be used as an invisible sun protection cream. Zinc is an essential skin mineral, it calms and smoothes skin by reducing oxidative stress. The combination of excellent sun protection and calming properties make nanonised zinc oxide an incredibly attractive sun protection agent.
