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.
What does Zinc ricinoleate do?
Zinc ricinoleate effectively traps and absorbs odor molecules so they are not perceivable, making it a highly effective natural deodorizer.
Applications: Deodorant sticks or emulsion type deodorants.
