Zinc Oxide has wonderful astringent properties and is used in natural sunscreen products and lip balms since it's known to protect skin from both UVA and UVB rays. It also has a great soothing effect on damaged and irritated skin and is used in diaper rash creams, rough skin balms, soothing foot creams and balms, etc.

Being an inert ingredient it is also often used to thicken lotions and creams. In soap making people use it to give natural soap white colour or to help other colours 'stick' better to the cold processed soap.
