Collection: Zinc oxide ointment

Zinc oxide has been used for many years in ointments and lotions notably calamine lotion and nappy creams. It is well studied in relation to dermatology and can be found in all sorts of products from mineral sunscreens, haemorrhoid creams. According to this medically reviewed article zinc supplements and some zinc oxide ointments can be useful to manage acne.

We like it because it is cooling and soothing and is particularly suitable for oily skin, customers with very dry skin should be wary of its potential drying effect. Great for teenage skin.

Zinc oxide ointments are also very water repellant, which is why it is often found in nappy creams and barrier creams that protect the skin when washing up, cleaning or bathing.

Zinc oxide is also found in many mineral sunscreens and even haemorrhoid ointments.

Lyonsleaf products are cosmetic products and so can only be recommended to keep normal healthy skin in good condition. If you have any sort of problem skin you should see a doctor or dermatologist and we recommend careful research of the ingredients of any over the counter creams you may purchase.
