With alluring nutritional properties and addressing zinc deficiency, zinc oxide, is used as an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) in pharmaceuticals as well as nutraceuticals.
Zinc oxide continues to be an integral performance differentiator in Sunscreens, and cosmetics. Zinc oxide used for its intrinsic UVA/UVB blocking properties makes all the difference even in daily wear moisturisers, and creams.
Zinc oxide addresses zinc deficiency through trace elements infeed pre–mixes for poultry, cattle, horses, and pigs. Moreover, with its intrinsic properties, zinc oxide also aids in preventing and / or healing facial eczema in cattle.
Zinc oxide, as an API is used an anti-microbial, anti-septic and anti-fungal agent in a wide variety of personal creams. Used in distinct variations in irritated skin healing ointments, in minor wound healing creams, and as the most dominant API in baby – diaper rash creams.
Zinc oxide is widely used not only as a micronutrient to address zinc deficiency in soil, but also to promote healthy growth – increased yield. Zinc oxide is an active constituent in fertilisers, and foliar applications in broadacre and horticulture.
The key active anti-corrosion propensity of zinc oxide makes it a critical ingredient in anti-corrosion surface coatings. While Zinc oxide enhances durability, and UV protection it also aids in improved colour retention.
Zinc oxide works as a catalyst in tyres and rubber products, speeding up vulcanisation and providing increased efficacy.
Zinc oxide has specialised usage in lubricants, and engine oils: decelerated oxidation and corrosion leading to lower rate of wear and tear.
