Crafter's Choice™ Zinc Ricinoleate

Zinc Ricinoleate is a popular, highly effective ingredient for Odor Neutralization.

Use zinc ricinoleate when  formulating an odor absorbent, a naturally derived deodorant or other products where an effective odor absorption is desired.

A highly effective deodorant based on the zinc salt of ricinoleic acid.

Uses and Benefits:

  • Zinc ricinoleate is intended for use in making deodorants and odor absorbents.
  • Zinc ricinoleate traps and chemically absorbs odor molecules formed during bacterial decomposition of perspiration
  • It does not inhibit transpiration and is therefore not an antiperspirant
  • Because of the special properties of zinc ricinoleate it has fungicidal or bacterial properties, so it will not interfere with the skin's natural flora. 
  • Very useful when making emulsion type deodorants

Formulating tips - Typically the zinc ricinoleate is melted together with other oily components in the oil phase of the formulation. The melt temperature is 80°C (176°F). Blend to emulsify as usual.

Typical use rate is 1% to 3%.

For external use only.
