Z-COTE® HP1 X
INCI name(s)Zinc Oxide (and) Triethoxycaprylylsilane
Zinc oxide is known for its beneficial properties as skin protectant and its antimicrobial activity. All BASF zinc oxide grades provide broad-band light attenuation, which covers almost uniformly nearly the whole UV-Spectrum: from the short UVB up to the long UVA-I (380 nm). It is specifically recommended for daily skin care and the protection of sensitive skin, e.g. children.Z-COTE® HP1 X consists of approx. 98% micronized zinc oxide and 2 % of a hydrophobic coating. It should be incorporated into the oil phase of a formulation.All Z-COTE® grades show synergistic effects with organic UV-filters, especially with Uvinul® T150, and can be used to enhance the UVA and SPF performance of a sunscreen product. The product quality of the Z-COTE®grades meets or exceeds the current USP requirements.
