Abstract: EU member states in the EU Commission Working Group on Cosmetics voted in favor of approving zinc oxide as a UV filter in cosmetics in Europe.

Croda has welcomed the news that zinc oxide was voted as a UV filter in cosmetics in Europe by the EU member states in the EU Commission Working Group on Cosmetics.

"By formally approving new options to achieve effective UVA and UVB protection, this is a major milestone for formulators of UV protection products who will now have a wider choice of globally approved UV filters to meet consumers' needs," said Helene Hine, marketing manager.
