A relative of mine mentioned that they used zinc oxide powder to make their own sunscreen and suggested I do the same. I’ve not the time nor the inclination to make my own sun screen so I just buy mine online. I’ve seen some studies starting to question how safe some of the commercial products for sun protection really are. If you are like me you read labels. I not only read labels on food packages, I also read them on cosmetics and personal care items. Some of the chemical products added to sun screen can definitely give a person pause for concern.
You can make all sorts of products from zine oxide powder such as sun screen that my friend makes. It can also be used to make lip balm and foundation as well as a host of other personal care items.
I do recommend that if you buy it you make sure to buy what is called non-nano and uncoated zinc oxide. The non-nano type of zinc will not sink into your pores. Make sure to buy pharmaceutical grade, too. This is easy to do if you shop for it online at Amazon. In fact they have several good products that are pure and that will be perfect for your homemade beauty products.
