Fine white transparent powder with minimal whitening effect, faint odor. Dispersible but not soluble in oils.

CAS: 1314-13-2, 2943-75-1

INCI Name: Zinc oxide, triethoxycaprylylsilane

Properties: Known to reflect sunlight (UVB rays). Soothing effects for skin irritations, antimicrobial properties. Transparent with minimal whitening effect. Biggest advantage vs. non-coated zinc oxide is that coated zinc oxide is more compatible with acrylate-based thickeners (e.g. carbomer), because it shows alkaline properties in formulations and needs therefore less neutralizers (e.g TEA, NaOH).

Use: To be dispersed into the oil phase of formulation. Usually combined with organic sunscreens, typical use level 3-6% when combined with organic sunscreens, use level when given alone 3-25%. For external use only.

Applications: Sun care products, makeup products. Will not give coverage to makeup due to it's transparency, for coverage use regular zinc oxide or titanium dioxide.

Documents: SDS, Fact Sheet, Certificate of Analysis
