ZINC OXIDE (NON-NANO)
Occurring in nature as zincite, this water-insoluble substance makes an excellent sunblock, protecting skin from UVA and UVB rays. It’s a naturally occurring mineral that deflects the sun’s burning rays off the skin, offering significant protection from damaging UVA/UVB rays. Zinc oxide is the only ingredient that is FDA-recognized as having both UVB and UVA broadest-spectrum protection, as well as having therapeutic benefits.
A mineral used as a coloring agent in cosmetic products. Hematite varies in color from reddish-brown to black. (as an example, calamine lotion contains Zinc Oxide and a small amount of iron oxide to give a pink product)
Mica is a naturally occurring mineral dust.
Has the highest linoleic acid content of all vegetable oils. Safflower oil has superior skin compatibility and increases the moisture content of the skin.
