A NOVEL ZnO WITH ALL THE BENEFITS OF BOTH MICRON & NANO ZnO
MicNo®-ZnO technology from Entekno Materials is a novel mineral-based UV filter. Created by patented MicNo® particle technology it combines the benefits of both micron & nano ZnO particles. MicNo®-ZnO is a tailored, platelet shaped, micron sized particle composed of nano primary particles. MicNo® acts like micron ZnO over the skin, since it does not penetrate through the skin, but it still offers the transparent protection of nano ZnO.
Ender Suvaci, Tümerkan Kesim, Zuhal Sapan and Chamkaur Kang present a zinc oxide powder that combines the high transparency and SPF protection of nano-sized particles with the favourable safety profile of micron ZnO.
There are two main types of skin cancer, melanoma & non-melanoma skin cancer. Non-melanoma skin cancers are the most common type of skin cancer. However, as they are not required to be reported to cancer registries the actual incidence & mortality statistics available are best estimates & not always up to date.
In the ever-changing landscape of sun protection products, consumers are struggling to keep up & understand the cosmetic industry’s current sun protection message. The high mortality rate from UV ray associated melanomas, one person dies of melanoma every hour & 86% of melanomas are caused by UV rays from the sun, means that it is widely accepted by consumers that protection of the skin from the sun is a necessity.
