A NOVEL ZnO WITH ALL THE BENEFITS OF BOTH MICRON & NANO ZnO
MicNo® – Zinc Oxide 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 zinc oxide 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 zinc oxide.
MicNo® PRODUCT PORTFOLIO
Mineral-based sunscreen filters such as TiO2 and ZnO offer a natural solution to UV protection in personel care products compared to traditional organic filters which can be harmful to humans and environment. Among UV filters, zinc oxide (ZnO) is the only globally approved UV filter that can provide broad spectrum UV protection by blocking harmful UVA and UVB rays.
Having sensitive skin can be a real challenge for consumers when it comes to buying cosmetics. It does, however, present an opportunity for cosmetics companies. It is becoming increasingly common for people to consider themselves as having sensitive skin.
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.
