Croda’s Zinc Oxide Enters Annex VI Of the EU Cosmetics Regulation

The EU Commission Working Group on Cosmetics has voted in favor of approving zinc oxide from Croda as a UV filter in cosmetics in Europe.  Zinc oxide in both its nano and non-nano form will be suitable for use as a UV filter, with official entry into Annex VI of the EU Cosmetics Regulation expected early this year, according to the company. Croda offers a range of zinc oxide dispersions under its Solaveil Clarus brand, Solaveil CZ-100 and Solaveil CZ-300.

According to Helene Hine, marketing manager, Croda, by formally approving new options to achieve effective UVA and UVB protection, this is a major milestone for formulators of UV protection products who will now have a wider choice of globally approved UV filters to meet consumers’ needs.”

“Croda firmly believe in the value of mineral UV filters and is pleased with this recent development and the opportunities it opens up for both our customers and ultimately the end consumer,” Hine concluded.
