ZinClear XP

ZinClear XP™ is a high performance zinc oxide (ZnO) powder which leaves no whiteness in formulations when applied on the skin. The UVA performance of ZinClear XP™ has been optimised to ensure compliance with the toughest sunscreen regulations around the world.

Enhanced UVA protection

A unique advantage of zinc oxide is that its absorbance profile intrinsically spans both UVA and UVB. This property has been enhanced in ZinClear XP™ to maximise the UV protection efficacy of products in which it is used. This enables ZinClear XP™ to be used on its own or in combination with other filters to meet regulatory requirements:

  • UVAPF ≥ 1/3 SPF
  • Critical wavelength ≥ 370nm

Superior Aesthetics

Exceptionally high transparency and low whiteness are possible even at maximum use levels thanks to the market leading performance of ZinClear XP™

Formulation Versatility

The high performance and powder format of ZinClear XP™ allow it to be used in various formulation types, for example W/O or O/W emulsions, sticks, and sun oils. This versatility makes it ideal for use in a wide variety of applications ranging from low-SPF daily wear moisturisers and cosmetics to high-SPF beach wear products. ZinClear XP™ may be used alone as the only active ingredient or to provide extra UVA and UVB protection in formulations containing TiO2 or organic chemical filters.

  • Suncare products: appealing formulations that meet the toughest regulatory requirements
  • Everyday cosmetics: effective UV protection without compromising transparency and skin feel.
Replacing chemical filters

The cost effectiveness of ZinClear XP™, combined with its superior properties, enables replacement of chemical filters in suncare formulations. Advantages of using ZinClear XP™ include:

  • High transparency and low whiteness, comparable to formulations made with chemical filters
  • 100% mineral and natural UV protection when used as the only filter or in combination with TiO2
  • Photostable on its own; no stabilisers required.
  • Simpler formulation with ZinClear XP™ as a stand-alone broad spectrum filter
  • Suitable for sensitive skins; zinc oxide sunscreens are widely recommended by dermatologists for patients with skin disorders or those suffering sensitisation or irritation resulting from the use of chemical based sunscreens.
