Australian actives manufacturer Advance ZincTek has launched EcoZinc, claimed to be the world's first solar-powered, non-nano zinc oxide powder for SPF-rated cosmetics and sunscreens.
The Brisbane firm says EcoZinc not only minimizes environmental impact, but also achieves a dramatic reduction in carbon emissions-saving over 1011g of CO2 per kilowatt of energy used compared to traditional zinc oxide production.
Engineered via Advance ZincTek's state-of-the-art ZinClear XP architecture, it ensures unmatched sustainability & uniform particle distribution in five BET ranges.
Offering 23.08% more absorbance at a wavelength of 290nm than some competitors, EcoZinc merges top-tier skin protection and sustainability.
“EcoZinc represents a major evolution for both skincare brands and consumers striving to protect their skin and the planet,” said Advance ZincTek managing director Geoff Acton.
“Our 100% solar-powered manufacturing process testifies to our resolution to spearhead the industry transition towards safer, sustainable sun protection,” he added.
EcoZinc's eco-friendly zinc oxide provides an integral solution for reef-safe cosmetics that meet the stringent regulations of regions such as Hawaii, Mexico, and Thailand.
Through EcoZinc, companies can eliminate harmful synthetic chemicals from their products, significantly minimizing the impact on marine life, said Advance ZincTek.
