Anyone knows what is zinc oxide for in CP? I've seen it in some soap ingredient list. I read the wiki and it made my head spin... :oops:

Zinc oxide is normally used for it's sunscreen properties. I don't see what it would add to soap, since it's a rinse off product.

She's using calamine powder, allantoin and zinc oxide for it's soothing properties, but in this case, I
don't think it will make much of a difference. Those ingredients are better in lotions or balms, since they stay on the skin.

You're welcome cat040876. Sometimes people add things to their soap for their "marketing" value.
