Croda_New_SolutionCroda launches Solaveil™ MicNo®, which combines all the benefits of micron-sized Zinc Oxide (ZnO) with unrivalled transparency on skin. It is a new solution for safe and sustainable solar protection products.

Innovative Range of ZnO Powders


This innovative range of ZnO powders and dispersions is based on patented, platelet-shaped structures that ensure Solaveil™ MicNo® particles are large enough to be suitable for natural and COSMOS approved formulations, whilst also being transparent on skin. This level of transparency makes them extremely versatile and suitable for a wide range of end applications and skin phototypes.

Driven by our Purpose, to use ‘Smart Science to Improve Lives’ we are tackling some of the biggest challenges the world is facing today and have made a commitment to be ‘Climate, Land and People Positive’ by 2030. One of our Hero Targets within our ‘People Positive’ commitment is to protect at least 60 million people annually from potentially developing skin cancer from harmful UV rays, through the use of our solar protection ingredients,” commented Helene Hine, marketing manager solar protection.

Ideal for Natural & Clean Beauty Brands


The latest launch Solaveil™ MicNo® is helping the company to meet this target, extending the range of Solaveil mineral filters and tackling a big challenge for mineral formulations, which is whitening on skin. As this range is based on ZnO, it is inherently mild and non-irritant, and there are no concerns around skin penetration, so perfect for babies, children and sensitive skin.

Solaveil™ MicNo® products are also ideal for natural and clean beauty brands, as “nature identical minerals” they are available as either coated or uncoated particles, with COSMOS variants available. For the first time ever, it is possible to formulate highly transparent mineral sunscreen systems to meet the needs of consumers looking for natural and clean sunscreens.
