Description

Zinc Ricinoleate is a highly effective deodorant based on the zinc salt of ricinoleic acid, which is a castor oil derivative. It is especially suitable for use in emulsion and stick type deodorant formulations. Zinc Ricinoleate does not inhibit natural transpiration, odourants formed during bacterial decomposition of perspiration are chemically trapped . Zinc Ricinoleate has no bactericidal or fungicidal properties and therefore does not interfere with the natural flora of the skin and is often blended with other anti microbial actives such as DEO EHG and similar emollients. Due to its good deodorizing properties it is especially suitable for any emulsion type of deo formulations.
