Zinc in Cosmetics: A Multifunctional Ingredient for the Skin


Introduction: Zinc, a Precious Ingredient in Cosmetology

Zinc plays a crucial role in our well-being and health. In cosmetology, this chemical element exceeds expectations by responding to a variety of skin concerns thanks to its multiple forms. Able to act as a protective shield against UV rays, improve skin hydration, treat acne and promote healing, zinc is an ally of choice for everyone, from the youngest to the oldest. In this article, we take an in-depth look at how zinc, in its various forms, enriches skincare products, offering multiple benefits for the skin.

Zinc in Sun Protection: A Solid Shield

Zinc oxide, in its white powder form, is a key component in the manufacture of sunscreens. Thanks to its ability to reflect UVA and UVB rays, it plays a vital role in sun protection, preventing sun damage while being particularly well tolerated by sensitive skin. The use of zinc oxide in sun protection products reveals its importance in preventing premature skin ageing and the risk of cancer. By adhering to the principles of biosafety, Vernixa ensures that the forms of zinc oxide used are free from nanoparticle risks, demonstrating a responsible and safe route to sun protection.

In addition to its suncare benefits, zinc oxide also stands out for its healing and soothing qualities. Products containing zinc oxide can significantly reduce skin irritation, offering relief in conditions such as diaper rash in infants, while promoting skin repair and resilience.

Zinc PCA: Hydration and Clarity Booster

Zinc PCA represents a unique synergy between zinc and pyrrolidone carboxylic acid, a molecule naturally present in the skin. This combination improves zinc absorption, regulates sebum production and maintains skin hydration. Its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial action makes zinc PCA an effective acne-fighting ingredient, preventing inflammation and inhibiting the proliferation of blemish-causing bacteria. Zinc PCA-enriched products are particularly suited to sensitive skin, providing deep hydration while keeping skin clear and balanced, illustrating Vernixa’s commitment to creating respectful, effective skincare.

Au-Delà du Zinc PCA: Diversity of Zinc Forms in Cosmetics

Zinc Gluconate: An Anti-Imperfection Ally

Zinc gluconate is appreciated for its effectiveness on oily and blemished skin, thanks to its antiseptic and healing properties. Its regular use in facial care can help reduce the appearance of imperfections and promote clearer, more balanced skin.

Zinc lactate: A solution for healthy skin

Zinc lactate is another example of zinc’s versatility in cosmetics. Used in toothpastes and deodorants for its anti-plaque and anti-odour properties, it also finds a place in cosmetology to improve the overall appearance of the skin, once again underlining the diversity of uses for zinc in skin well-being.

Conclusion: Zinc, an Essential Component for the Skin

In its various forms, zinc is an essential ingredient in cosmetics, suitable for all ages and skin types. Vernixa products demonstrate the brand’s commitment to providing natural, safe and effective skincare solutions. Incorporating zinc into your skincare regime can transform your skin, leaving it healthy, protected and radiant.

I use Hydra Lavant daily to cleanse my four-year-old daughter: a real sensation of care on application, a delicate foam, a product that rinses off easily and leaves a perceptible protective film. Even after drying, the skin is supple and emollient. My daughter no longer feels any tightness, even in this winter season. As for me, I use it to remove my make-up in the shower, it's super gentle on the face and removes make-up residue without aggression. At last, a cleanser in which every ingredient has added value, and which truly respects fragile skin!
