Zinc Oxide (non-nano, non-coated)
Zinc and zinc compounds play an important role in human health. Zinc deficiency can manifest itself in many ways including growth retardation, decreased immune function, skin disturbances, gastrointestinal dysfunction and various blood disorders.
Zinc oxide has been used as a derma to therapeutic agent for hundreds of years, first as a component of calamine and then on its own in various preparations. Zinc containing compounds are a great benefit to humans. Some zinc containing compounds are well known antimicrobials. Zinc Oxide is also very beneficial as a sunscreen or sun barrier. Zinc oxide today is widely used as a topical therapeutic medication. It may well be the most commonly used topically applied drug of all time.
Zinc Oxide as a sunscreen:
The solar spectrum is divided into various wavelengths which are measured in nanometers. Our interest is in ultraviolet Radiation or UVR, which is credited with the most biologically significant consequence of sunexposed conditions like sunburn and skin cancer.
UVR is divided into UVC /UVB /UVA
UVC – very toxic (carcinogenic) however virtually all filtered out by the ozone layer.
UVB – makes about 18% of the solar UV spectrum – the immediate sunburn.
UVA – makes about 75% of the solar UV spectrum – this is photaging (skin ageing, yellowing of the skin, loss of skin elasticity, wrinkles, and melanoma).
NonNano Zinc Oxide this inorganic mineral is NOT absorbed by the skin. (nano zinc oxide is absorbed due to its nano particles) Because of its Non Nano state, this zinc oxide should not cause any adverse reactions to the skin such as allergies or irritation.
