Zinc oxide

Zinc oxide is an inorganic compound that appears as a white powder. The powder has the appearance of being chalky because it reflects light well. It is insoluble in water but soluble in acids or alkalis. This makes it perfect for use as a pigment or sunscreen because it gives these materials colour and opacity to protect the skin.

Zinc oxide has many applications, which include use as a sunscreen to protect the skin. When zinc oxide is mixed with sweat or sebum, it produces an even coating on the skin without clogging pores. It can absorb ultraviolet light when it is coated on the skin in a thick layer. This sunscreen also protects the skin at a molecular level by converting UV rays into heat. Zinc oxide is normally used in sunscreens in combination with other ingredients, such as titanium dioxide and ferments. It is commonly used in sunscreens because it can be easily spread over the skin surface and does not cause an oily mess.

Zinc oxide has many benefits for your skin, including protection against UVA and UVB rays. It also provides great soothing relief to sensitive or irritated skin. Zinc oxide can be found in diaper rash ointments, diaper wipes, sunscreens, and moisturisers.
