Zinc Ricinoleate powder is a white to off-white free flowing powder. It is an odour absorber in the form of powder. Zinc Ricinoleate is a key ingredient in most natural deodorant formulations, as it traps and absorbs odour as well as easily emulsifies into oils and waxes.
However, it is not an antiperspirant and does not have any antimicrobial properties and so will not interfere with the skin's natural microbial flora.
Odour: Is characteristic of any fatty acid ester and will not affect the end formulation.
