Summer, Sun, UV Protection...

Temperatures above 30 degrees and endless hours of sunshine - even in September: Meteorologists are calling it the summer of the millennium. With a current UV index of over 5, sunglasses and sun cream are a must for the avoidance of skin cancer and premature ageing.

Summer, Sun, UV Protection...

With all risks of UV radiation in mind, we are delighted to present our latest sun protection solutions with natural ingredients from our portfolio. In order to ensure reliable sun protection, multiple factors play a crucial role in the formulation:

  • High-performance emulsifiers
  • UV absorber system
  • Uniform particle distribution
  • High level of transparency
  • Improvement of water resistance
  • Pleasant feeling on the skin


Zinc oxide is an effective active agent for protection against UVA and UVB radiation. Our Zano® range offers a broad spectrum of zinc oxide products. These are naturally photostable and, in contrast to most chemical filters, do not require any additional ingredients for the improvement of photostability.

The Zano® portfolio comprises coated and uncoated products as well as dispersions (Xperse®) in various esters and oils.
With the COSMOS Certificate a majority of the portfolio can be used for the production of certified natural cosmetics.

Product overview of our Zano® range:

Zano® 10 & Zano® 10 Plus: A good balance between UV protection and product transparency

Zano® 20 & Zano® 20 Plus: Highest transparency for sun protection formulations
