Zeolite cosmetics grade is a natural aluminosilicate mineral with a regular microporous crystal structure, which plays a particularly active role in neutralizing free radicals, shielding ultraviolet rays, and adsorbing toxins and heavy metals.
Application of zeolite in the field of beauty and cosmetics
The skin is one of the main areas where toxic substances released from environmental pollutants accumulate. The bioscavenger activity of natural zeolites opens up a wide range of applications in cosmetics and dermatology.
Purpose of zeolite cosmetics grade
This work aimed to evaluate the ability of zeolite powders to retain heavy metals in new skin care formulations to provide a proof of principle for their application in the cosmetic field.
Materials and methods
Taking advantage of spiked samples, we investigated the in vitro adsorption properties of zeolites in a new skincare formulation. The removal capabilities of cadmium, lead, chromium, nickel, and cobalt were investigated using inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES).
