New Generation ZnO Particle Technology

Since the number of patients diagnosed with skin cancer & melanoma is increasing day by day around the world as a result of harmful UV-rays, sun protection became more important. Every year, approximately 3 million new people have been getting suffered from skin problems. To eliminate the hazardous effects of UV-rays, using sunscreen which has at least 15 SPF allows decreasing this ratio by 50%.

Scientific studies show that using of UV-filters is one of the most crucial points to avoid skin cancer. While the discussions are going on about the detrimental effects of the chemical UV-filters, mineral-based UV-filters are still seen as the safest solution against the UV-rays.

Entekno Materials has developed an innovative & safe solution called MicNo® Powder Technology to put an end to these discussions. This novel technology has been patented around the world & presented to the sunscreen manufacturers to create human & environment-friendly products.

Novel MicNo® Powder UV-filter technology has unique properties & performance advantages over conventional micron and nano ZnO forms. It combines the benefits & overcomes the disadvantages of both micron & nano ZnO particles. Scientific studies showed that MicNo® is a bicompatible and environmentally benign ingredient. To achieve broad spectrum protection against the harmful UV-rays, MicNo® Powder particle technology is the best choice for cosmetic applications.

MicNo® Powder offers:

  • Higher SPF & sun protection with less ZnO content
  • No whitening even at 25% MicNo® ZnO
  • Transparent and smooth products without residue
  • Formulation with No or reduced preservatives
  • Broad spectrum UV protection
