The sunscreen, cosmetics and hair care markets are moving towards mineral-based “natural” UV absorbers. Last year, the EU Annex VI cosmetics regulation approved the use of nano zinc oxide in cosmetics. This has resulted in an increase in the use of nano zinc oxide in a variety of consumer products because of its superior performance as a wide spectrum UV absorber.
However, many of the zinc oxide products currently available on the market have wide particle size distributions which adversely affect product performance and visual appearance. Non-uniform nano zinc oxide results in un-even absorption and white clumping on the skin.
Cerion has developed an early-stage zinc oxide that can be precisely engineered to meet the exact UV absorption requirements of our customer’s products.
