Consumers demand natural ingredients in their personal care products. With sun care there is also concern about residuals in the oceans. Why formulate with organic/chemical sunscreens when there are ocean-friendly, natural options offering the feel and performance to please even a discerning customer? 88% of consumers want you to help them make a difference when it comes to the environment.* EverCare® can help you do that.
All eyes have been on sunscreens and the impact they could have on polluting the oceans and damaging coral reefs. Legislations globally have been assessing the information available on the different sunscreen filters available and have begun to ban up to 10 organic/chemical sunscreen filters which are suggested to be impacting reefs negatively. Further, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has stated that the only UV filters that can be classified as “Generally Recognized as Safe and Effective” (GRASE) are the natural inorganic UV filters zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.
Based on this revised proposal for the U.S. FDA sunscreen ingredients monograph, Zano® Zinc Oxide from EverCare has emerged as one of the safest options for sunscreens. In addition, all uncoated Zano® products are COSMOS and ECOCERT certified. Zano® products are not only effective at checking all the boxes for an environmentally friendly ingredient, they are also a natural UV filter providing tailored SPF, UVA and transparency levels that comply to international UVA regulations and broad-spectrum claims. When used as a single UV filter, SPF values of 30+ are easy to achieve and when designing SPF 50+ products, Zano® can be combined with different boosters or other UV filters. Other advantages include being photostable without the use of stabilizers, maintaining their performance upon sunlight radiation.
