Zinc Oxide Powder is used for making make-up pigment, sunscreen, bath soaps, nail products, and lotions. Zinc Oxide helps to soothe, repair and even heal skin. It can absorb both UVA and UVB rays, making it a perfect component for sunscreens and lotions. It is a skin protectant that is used to treat and prevent various skin conditions including minor abrasions, burns, chafing, diaper rash, insect bites, and minor skin irritation. Zinc oxide works by forming a barrier on top of the skin that protects the area from moisture and irritants.
