BASF Care Creations’ Z-Cote HP1 (INCI: Zinc Oxide (and) Triethoxycaprylylsilane) is an inorganic broad-spectrum filter for UVA and UVB wavelengths.
The ingredient delivers UV protection and photostability with the added benefit of combating free radicals. The non-greasy, preservative-free solution synergizes with organic UV filters and functions in both the oil and water phases.
Z-Cote HP1 also demonstrated high broad-spectrum performance in vitro, safety for use in both adults and children, and high efficiency. The company reports the material importantly achieves the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s criteria for broad-spectrum protection.
The Z-Cote range offers formulators a choice of formats to optimize performance according to formulation needs. The ingredients are available in powders, pourable dispersion, nano, non-nano, coated and uncoated forms.
