Symrise says: Zinc about it

Symrise has developed a zinc oxide-based mineral UV filter range of cosmetic ingredients to be marketed under its existing Neo Heliopan sun care portfolio.

The product range consists of two surface-treated powders: Neo Heliopan ZnO 40, which provides broad-spectrum UV protection with a focus on increasing the SPF, and Neo Heliopan ZnO 300, which provides broad-spectrum UV protection with a focus on increasing the UVA-PF.

Strategic partner Kobo, which specializes in powders and dispersions related to colour cosmetics and mineral UV filters, has supported Symrise in the development of the range.

The German company said it is complementing its UV filter portfolio to meet current expectations of consumers. “They want effective, safe, and natural sun care products,” it added.

The mineral UV filters are based on zinc oxide.

“Formulators get considerably challenged when dispersing zinc oxide in the oil phase. They need to expend a big amount of mechanical energy with crude zinc oxide,” said Symrise Global Head Business Unit Sun Protection, Functionals & Colours, Ev Suess.

“We have surface-treated our powdered form of Neo Heliopan ZnO 40 and Neo Heliopan ZnO 300. Manufacturers can now process their products faster and with less dust.

“This results in a more sustainable production process that uses significantly less energy.”
