Croda Personal Care launches Micro Zinc Oxide for the formulation of transparent sunscreens

Global specialty chemicals company Croda has launched a new solution for safe, long-lasting sun protection products, Solaveil MicNo, which combines all the benefits of micro-sized zinc oxide (ZnO) with skin transparency.

This innovative range of ZnO powders and dispersions is based on patented platelet-shaped structures that guarantee a Solaveil MicNo particle size suitable for natural, Cosmos-approved formulations, while remaining transparent on the skin. This level of transparency makes the range versatile and suitable for a wide range of applications and skin phototypes.

Helene Hine, Sun Protection Marketing Manager, comments: "Driven by our "smart science to improve lives" mission, we want to tackle some of the biggest challenges facing the world today and are committed to making a positive impact on climate, earth and people by 2030. One of our key objectives as part of our "People Positive" commitment is to protect at least 60 million people a year from skin cancers, through the use of our sunscreen ingredients.Our latest launch, Solaveil MicNo, helps us achieve this goal, by expanding our Solaveil mineral filter range and addressing a key challenge for mineral formulations - skin whitening. As this range is based on ZnO, it is inherently gentle and non-irritating, and there are no skin penetration problems, so it's perfect for babies, children and sensitive skin. Solaveil MicNo products are also ideal for natural brands. The range comprises both coated and uncoated particles, with Cosmos variants available. For the first time ever, it is possible to formulate highly transparent mineral sunscreen systems to meet the needs of consumers looking for natural, clean sunscreens."
