When buying zinc oxide powder, you need to make sure you are purchasing non-nano zinc oxide.  This is VERY important.  Nano zinc oxide can enter your bloodstream, while non-nano will not.  The particles in our powder are larger than 100nm, making it completely FDA approved and safe for you to use at home.  Since zinc oxide itself is a sunscreen, it makes a fantastic ingredient for mineral make up.
