Z-Cote® and Z-Cote HP1® microfine zinc oxide…the clear choice for sun protection.

An innovative form of microfine zinc oxide, with a particle size of less than 0.2 microns, Z-Cote is invisible when applied to the skin. Z-Cote is a physical, inorganic ingredient that is ideal for hypo-allergenic formulations making it an ultimate choice for your salve, lip balm, mineral makeup and skin protectant / diaper rash formulations at a usage rate of 2 - 25%.

Z-Cote Zinc Oxide is:

  • hydrophilic (dispersible in water)
  • uncoated
  • non-nano
  • inorganic ingredient that is ideal for hypo-allergenic formulations
  • does not cause allergic reaction
  • Recommended to easily disperse into an Oil in Water emulsions (typical of a "natural/homemade" lotion)

All Z-Cotes are microfine zinc oxides with a particle size of less than 0.2 microns (200 nm). As a result, these Z-Cotes are transparent,non-staining, non-greasy when applied to the skin by using them alone or mixing them in cosmetic formulas yet still offer both broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection.

We recommend Z-Cote for sun protection. However, be reminded that if you make a formal claim as to SPF protection of a product which you sell, you are considered by Health Canada to be selling an over-the-counter drug. Health Canada would require you to conduct independent testing of your product to confirm the SPF rating which you are marketing.
