What Is Zinc Oxide Powder?

Zinc oxide powder (or ZnO) is a naturally occurring mineral in the form of a fine, white-coloured powder. This powder contains micronised, non-nano, and uncoated particles that are not absorbed into the skin and as such, the micronised particles provide a certain level of sun protection. 

Benefits Of Zinc Oxide Powder

Zinc oxide powder has a range of qualities and characteristics that are helpful when thinking of DIY projects for self-care and around your home. This is because it has properties such as:


Zinc oxide powder is white. Although it’s not something many people consider in their daily lives, many in the beauty and skin care industry have capitalised on its shade and added it to sunscreen and other pigments. For this reason, zinc oxide powder is a useful base for some people in self-care products like skin care.

Skin Care

Zinc oxide powder is particularly useful in skin care for a wide variety of reasons. You’ll find zinc oxide powder in moisturisers, tinted creams, lotions, foundations, eyeshadows, body care and much more, thanks to its flexibility and usability.


One of the key factors of zinc oxide powder as an ingredient is how thermally stable it is. It can withstand high temperatures, which contributes to its UV-resistant nature without breaking down. This means that zinc oxide powder can be useful in certain industrial processes, like ceramics.

Uses Of Zinc Oxide Powder

As mentioned above, zinc oxide powder is particularly handy when it comes to topical self-care products, especially body care. This can also extend to other DIY ideas or gifts, including bath soaps, hair care, and skin care

If you’re looking to use zinc oxide for other projects at home, its flexibility lends itself to a series of other ventures. Just like with ceramics, zinc is also popular when it comes to coating and painting because it resists corrosion, offers UV protection, and has some beneficial antimicrobial properties that can further protect your project.

When adding zinc oxide powder to any homemade product, it is, of course, always advisable to consult a professional to ensure that it complies with your wellness needs.

Ingredients That Blend Well With Zinc Oxide Powder

Make Your Own Natural Moisturiser With Zinc Oxide Powder

Are you after a fun, simple recipe to whip up at home with your zinc oxide powder? N-Essentials has you covered! We know how thrilling it is to undertake a new DIY project – especially if it involves taking care of yourself. This is an easy recipe for a moisturiser with zinc oxide powder.

Please note, while this moisturiser does have sun-protection properties because of the zinc oxide powder, it should not be used as your sole sun protection or without the feedback of your health and beauty care provider.



  1. Make sure that the area you’re going to be working in is clean and sanitised before you start.
  2. Combine the coconut oil, shea butter and beeswax pellets in a heatproof bowl. Melt them down using a microwave or a double boiler. Be careful not to overheat or burn the ingredients. They should form a smooth, liquid consistency.
  3. Remove the bowl from the heat and allow it to cool for a short while.
  4. Wearing a mask to avoid accidental inhalation, add the zinc oxide powder and combine well.
  5. If desired, add the carrot seed oil.
  6. If desired, add your essential oil of choice.
  7. Stir well and make sure everything is well combined, then let it cool for a short time.
  8. Transfer the mixture to an airtight container or bottle, then let the cream cool further. As it cools, it will grow firmer and thicker.
  9. Store your cream in a cool, dry place and use as desired. We recommend labelling it with the date you made it.

Always patch-test your DIY self-care products before using them as usual. This will help you check for any sensitivity to any of the ingredients and ascertain whether you’re happy with the scent and texture of your creation.

What Does Zinc Oxide Do For Your Skin? Is Zinc Oxide Powder Safe for Skin?

Zinc oxide offers multiple benefits for the skin. You can add it to your skincare products and sunscreens. It is safe to use on all skin types. Zinc oxide is generally considered safe for skin use. It is a non-irritating, compound that sits on the skin's surface.

Along with this, it can also be blended with oils and butters for homemade skin care formulations, ensuring proper dispersion for effective use.

Where Do You Apply Zinc Oxide?

Zinc oxide is applied topically to the skin. It's commonly found in products like sunscreens, where it is applied to exposed areas to provide sun protection, or in barrier creams for areas prone to irritation, such as diaper regions in infants, to prevent rash. Zinc oxide from N-Essentials can be added to your sunscreen or moisturisers and can be safely applied to your face and body.

While zinc oxide is generally safe, potential side effects include mild skin irritation or allergic reactions in some individuals.

It's important to use as directed and consult a healthcare provider if adverse reactions occur or you are not sure it is safe for your situation. Zinc oxide is for topical use only. Do not ingest it at all. 

If you are concerned about using zinc oxide on your skin for the first time, make sure you do a patch test. Add zinc oxide to your sunscreen or moisturiser and apply it to a small patch of skin on your arm. Leave it for 24 hours. If there are no reactions or redness, then your DIY product is safe to use!

    N-essentials was recommended to me for the zinc oxide so I could make my own sunscreen .. it has more than lived up to the recommendation. The website was a breeze to use and the delivery time was exceptional.

    This zinc powder is fabulous (and so is the fast delivery!!) I run regular workshops teaching students how to make their own natural products and I use this zinc in many of the products I make, from natural make up to natural sunblock and nappy rash cream. It is non-nano so you can feel comfortable knowing it is safe to use on the skin (even a babies). If you're planning to make sunblock and worried you might end up looking white, you'll be amazed at how well this actually rubs in if you get your formula right. Would recommend this product without hesitation.

    Awesome product. Bought to make sunscreen. Combined with cocoa butter, beeswax, myrrh, carrot seed and lavender. Beautiful on my skin. Such great value for money when you consider the cost of sunscreen. Not to mention the toxins you’re avoiding.

    I purchased and used this product to make my own sunscreen. The product mixed in perfectly with my other ingredients (coconut oil, carrot seed oil and raspberry seed oil) and rubbed into my skin really well and evenly.
