What is zinc used for?

Zinc is a trace element essential to many biological functions in the body. It plays a crucial role in the functioning of the immune system, wound healing, protein synthesis, cell division, and nutrient metabolism. Regarding the skin, zinc is renowned for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and sebum-regulating properties. It is often used in skincare products to treat acne, soothe skin irritations, and promote healing.

Can I use it if I have sensitive skin?

Yes, generally, zinc is well tolerated by most skin types, including sensitive skin. Due to its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, zinc can even be beneficial for individuals with skin prone to redness, irritation, and allergic reactions. However, as with any cosmetic ingredient, it is recommended to perform a patch test on a small area of skin before extended use, especially if you have particularly sensitive or reactive skin. If no reaction occurs after a few days, you can safely use products containing zinc.
