Excellent Dispersion Properties with MicNo ZnO for Coloured Cosmetics
MicNo® has many other qualities that make it an ideal additive for colour cosmetics and coloured cosmetic applications.
MicNo® has a nano-porous structure that naturally creates a more ivory/beige colour, due to structural colouration, as opposed to the milk white colour that is currently associated with ZnO. With a higher visible light transparency when used at the same concentrations as commercial transparent nano ZnO, MicNo® also produces none whitening formulations.
The excellent dispersion properties of MicNo® allow for smoother formulations making it an ideal option for a bulking agent & emulsifier. These characteristics make MicNo® easier to incorporate into coloured cosmetics than conventional ZnO.
Another important feature of MicNo® is its broad spectrum antimicrobial activity against a range of micro-organisms & fungi, allowing for formulations with less preservatives or even preservative free. Less preservatives result in kinder to skin & more environmentally friendly formulations. Also, less ingredients in a formulation could translate to reduced cost formulations.
