Zinc Oxide powder...

Recommended Posts

I am going to make my own daily face lotion since I cant seem to find a natural one that works. I am trying to find some powdered pure zinc oxide to use as a sunscreen in it. Does anyone know where I might find some... who would sell this kind of thing? I've been researching natural non-comedogenic ingredients, I want everything I use to be rated 1 or under. These are the ingredients I plan on using:

-Aloe gel as a base

-Sunflower oil (rated 0 on the comedogenic scale... weird... but good :))

-Pure Glycerin

-Beeswax

-Zinc oxide

And then if I can find come chamomile extract I'm going to put that in there too... I was also wondering what kind of natural preservative I can use in it? Any Ideas? Maybe a bit of ACV?

Vitamin E? The acidity from the ACV should make it hard for microbes to grow in it, but for how long? I would mix small batches and use it up within a week. But you could look on websites that sell products for making your own cosmetics.

To preserve:

Grapefruit Seed extract, Rosemary extract.

I also have a book that says "Tincture of Benzoin".

Apparently even with the natural preservative the shelf life is very short.

The lotion can last a couple weeks without any preservative at all though.
