High protection profile for baby care products
MicNo® has broad spectrum antimicrobial activity against a range of micro-organisms & fungi. Since MicNo® can show high profile protection properties, the amount of MicNo® used as an active ingredient in sensitive skin & baby care applications will be lower than normal zinc oxide. Due to MicNo’s unique platelet shape, it can also ease irritation (itching & rash) in a very short time.
MicNo® technology offers the opportunity for decreased or preservative free formulations, due to its unique shape. The need for less preservatives would result in kinder to skin & environment formulations but also a decrease in total formulation ingredients which could translate to reduced formulation costs.
Not only is MicNo® a superior active ingredient, it is also a safer option. Research has shown MicNo® has a very positive profile for cytotoxicity, genotoxicity & phototoxicity, making MicNo® more biocompatible & safer for humans & the environment.
