What is non-nano zinc oxide?

Non-nano zinc oxide is a mineral compound commonly used as a key ingredient in sunscreens. Unlike nano-sized particles, non-nano zinc oxide particles are larger and remain on the surface of the skin without being absorbed. This property is important in sunscreens because it provides physical, broad-spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays.

Non-nano zinc oxide acts as a reflective shield, scattering and absorbing UV radiation before it can penetrate the skin. Due to its larger particle size, it reduces the risk of potential skin absorption and potential health concerns associated with nano-sized particles, making it a preferred choice for those seeking natural and safe sun protection.

In DIY sunscreens, non-nano zinc oxide is valued for its effectiveness in creating a protective barrier against harmful UV rays without the use of synthetic chemicals found in some commercial sunscreens.

Its presence allows individuals to customize their sun protection while avoiding potential skin sensitivities or allergies caused by certain chemical ingredients.

The non-nano characteristic ensures that the particles remain on the skin's surface, reducing the risk of skin irritation and any unintended health effects.

Where can I buy non-nano zinc oxide?

It's not as hard to find as you might think.

Non-nano zinc oxide can typically be found in online stores (like Amazon), at your local supermarket (like Walmart), or at specialized stores that offer natural and DIY skincare ingredients (if you have something like that near you).

When purchasing non-nano zinc oxide, make sure to check the product's specifications and ensure that it is indeed labeled as "non-nano." Additionally, look for reputable sellers and read reviews if available to gauge the quality of the product and the buying experience.
