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.
The world’s coral reefs are under threat. It is estimated that by 2050, 90% of reefs will die due to rising temperatures, with climate change the biggest threat to coral reefs. Overfishing, pollution & nutrient enrichment from agricultural runoff & sewage are also considered significant threats to coral reef health.

Biocompatibility of designed MicNo-ZnO particles: Cytotoxicity, genotoxicity and phototoxicity in human skin keratinocyte cells.
Recently, designed platelet shaped micron particles that are composed of nano primary particles, called MicNo (=Micron+naNo) particles, have been developed to exploit the benefits of nano size, while removing the adverse effects of nanoparticles. It has been shown that MicNo-ZnO particles exhibit both micron and nanosized particle characteristics.
