Zinc oxide for natural cosmetics

Sustainable ingredient for leave-on products

We are pleased that our zinc oxide alter­na­tive, Mag­ne­sia 78092, which we have recent­ly includ­ed in our port­fo­lio, has been so pos­i­tive­ly received by the mar­ket. We were able to qual­i­fy a sup­pli­er for the nat­ur­al raw mate­r­i­al zinc oxide, Mag­ne­sia 78092, which is absolute­ly con­vinc­ing — espe­cial­ly with regard to the ever-grow­ing mar­ket of nat­ur­al cos­met­ics. For you, this new zinc oxide offers the pos­si­bil­i­ty to opti­mise your cos­met­ic for­mu­la­tions sustainably. 

Mag­ne­sia 78092 is pro­duced in Ger­many from zinc pow­der of Euro­pean ori­gin. It is pro­duced using the so-called ‘French man­u­fac­tur­ing process’, which uses zinc steam and atmos­pher­ic oxy­gen. The zinc oxide obtained meets the require­ments for a nature-iden­ti­cal raw mate­r­i­al accord­ing to NATRUE. It can be used as a colourant accord­ing to INCI dec­la­ra­tion CI77947.

The man­u­fac­tur­er is COSMOS, EU-GMP Part II and FDA cer­ti­fied.
