LBB Specialties has announced a new partnership with Vizor to be its exclusive channel partner in the United States for its product portfolio, including the Super Zinc, Super Sperse and Sheer Sperse lines.

Vizor's newly expanded R&D lab in Brooklyn, New York and its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Middlesex County, New Jersey are poised to meet customer demand for innovation and product launches.

A part of the Super Zinc line, Super Zinc Natural (INCI: Zinc Oxide (and) Polyhydroxystearic Acid) is a naturally derived API grade, non-nano, eco-safe and photostable UV filter, per Vizor. The ingredient offers excellent dispersibility, wetting, high SPF per unit of zinc oxide, high UVA/UVB ratio and critical wavelength above 370 nm.

In the Super Sperse line, Super Sperse Natural 80C (INCI: Zinc Oxide (and) Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (and) Polyhydroxystearic Acid) dispersion offers a coating process that allows for de-agglomeration of zinc oxide and uniform coating using vapor deposition technology, allowing to make dispersions that are uniform and consistent, per the company. This results in better wetting, high loading and low viscosity products that are non-drying and yield high SPF. 

Christopher Nork, senior vice president of LBB Specialties Care, said, "Vizor has over 50 years of experience supplying ingredients to the personal care and sun care markets. We are excited to bring this expertise to our customer base, as these products meet global consumer demand with key patented technologies and ingredients delivering superior SPF protection."

Yannick Rigg, a founding member of Vizor, said, "Vizor’s suite of zinc oxide powders and dispersions is supported by patented technology that gives our material the highest SPF across the industry with exceptional aesthetics. This advancement finally gives formulators the ability to develop transparent, luxurious products while still using non-nano particle sizes. After meeting with the team at LBB Specialties, it became clear that their technical and entrepreneurial culture was a great fit for us. We couldn’t think of a better partner to help us spread this technology across key markets in the United States. Their existing portfolio of high-quality bio-active ingredients for skin, hair and color applications also perfectly complements our Super Zinc sunscreen actives line."
