ZinClearXP Dispersions

ZinClear XP™ 65COCO is the latest product developed by Advanced Nano Technologies, and is the first dispersion using ZinClear XP powder, which takes advantage of the improved UVA performance of this zinc oxide, whilst being in an easy to use dispersion.
 
PRODUCT RANGE
ZinClear XP™ dispersions consists of ZinClear XP 65COCO, as per below table.  Other dispersion are under product development – watch this space!
Product Name ZnO Emollient Advantages
ZinClear XP®65COCO 65% Coco-caprylate/caprate High zinc oxide loading and natural; Ecocert & NPA certified
 
ZinClear XP™ 65COCO dispersion has been developed to cater for the varying needs of the cosmetic & suncare industry.
Advantages of using ZinClear XP™ 65COCO 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, as can be used 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.
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™ 65COCO to maximise the UV protection efficacy of products in which it is used. This enables ZinClear XP™ 65COCO to be used on its own or in combination with other filters to meet regulatory requirements:
UVAPF ≥ 1/3 SPF
Critical wavelength ≥ 370nm
 
ZinClearXP 65Coco Transparency Comparison
UV/visible spectrum, ZinClear XP65COCO VS other ZnO brands
 
SUPERIOR AESTHETICS
Exceptionally high transparency and low whiteness are possible even at maximum use levels thanks to the market leading performance of ZinClear XP™ 65COCO.
 
FORMULATION VERSATILITY
The high performance of ZinClear XP™ 65COCO 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.  
 
The high zinc oxide loading of 65% allows greater flexibility when formulating compared to a 50% zinc oxide dispersion. 
 
ZinClear XP 65COCO maintains market leading transparency even at maximum permissible use levels.  This  gives formulators the freedom to create aesthetically pleasing products without any residual whiteness on the skin.
 
ZinClear XP™ 65COCO 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.

THE NATURAL CHOICE IN SUN CARE
The sales of natural products in the personal care sector are currently experiencing unprecedented growth. The mineral nature of zinc oxide, combined with the natural ingredients used in ZinClear XP 65COCO make it an ideal choice for use in 'all-natural' and 'mineral-only' suncare and skincare products.
ACHIEVING HIGH SPF WITH ZINC OXIDE
Recent improvements in formulation have made it possible to achieve high SPF using ZinClear XP™ 65COCO as the sole UV filter.
 
PHOTOSTABILITY – MAINTAINING HIGH LEVELS OF PROTECTION
SPF testing methods specified by regulatory authorities typically require sunscreen samples to be irradiated prior to testing to ensure that products remain effective during sun exposure. Many commonly used chemical absorbers suffer inherent photo-instability, gradually losing effectiveness as they are exposed to UV radiation. ZinClear XP™ 65COCO is photostable in formulations, offering reliable protection that lasts.
