Zinclear: Zinc Oxide from Antaria/ANO

ZinClear® Zinc Oxide products can be utilised to formulate elegant sunscreens with broad spectrum (UVA and UVB absorption) and high SPF


ZinClear® is ideal for the following applications:

  • Broad Spectrum UV protection (UVB, UVA-I, UVA-II)
  • Mild suncare for sensitive skin types or sensitive areas (face, neck)
  • Children’s sunscreens suitable for young skin at risk of sensitization
  • UV protection for Daily use products
    • Daily protection from UVA Damage
    • Daily Protection from Skin Ageing
    • Daily Protection from Skin Darkening
    • Daily Protection form Skin Pigmentation
  • As an SPF booster and UVA absorber for suncare using organic absorbers or TiO2


ZinClear® is available in dispersion and powder form and allow the formulation of very safe, mineral based sunscreens providing high SPF, high transparency and low whiteness on the skin


ZinClear®- IM Dispersions are homogenous dispersions of micron-sized zinc oxide particles in various carrier oils. The carrier liquids are emollients that provide excellent stability against flocculation or settling

The ZnO particles in ZinClear® IM dispersions have a porous structure, providing for a closer match of refractive index between the zinc oxide and the surrounding medium. It is this microstructure that enables the dispersions to give a high degree of transparency on skin, despite the relatively large particle size (compared to conventional sunscreen grades of zinc oxide)


ZinClear® XP is available as either a powder or in a dispersion

ZinClear® XP powder variant is a homogenous dry powder of micron-sized zinc oxide particles. Allowing formulators the option to incorporate zinc oxide into different phases and use different dispersing agents. A dispersion version is also available incorporated in coco-caprylate/caprate as the product ZinClear XP65COCO

ZinClear® XP powder has a larger particle size than that seen in ZinClear® IM dispersions, due to agglomeration of the particles in the dry powder state. However, when the powder is dispersed these agglomerates are broken down so that the particle size in ZinClear® XP65COCO dispersion is smaller than that in the ZinClear® IM dispersions
