What is Zinc ricinoleate?

Zinc ricinoleate is a complex compound derived from the fatty acid ricinoleic acid found in castor oil. Zinc ricinoleate works by absorbing and trapping odor molecules, particularly those associated with sweat and bacteria. It does not interfere with the natural sweating process but neutralizes odor-causing compounds to prevent unpleasant smells.

Uses and Benefits of Zinc Ricinoleate:

  • Deodorants and Odor Absorbents: Zinc Ricinoleate is commonly used to formulate deodorants and odor absorbents. Its odor-absorbing properties make it an ideal ingredient for odor-absorbing products.
  • Non-Antiperspirant: Unlike antiperspirants, Zinc Ricinoleate does not inhibit transpiration. It allows the natural process of perspiration while effectively neutralizing odors.
  • Preservation of Skin’s Natural Flora: Zinc Ricinoleate possesses unique properties that make it non-disruptive to the skin’s natural flora. It does not interfere with the beneficial bacteria on the skin.
  • Fungicidal and Bacterial Properties: Zinc Ricinoleate exhibits fungicidal and bacterial properties due to its unique properties, further enhancing its effectiveness in odor control.
  • Emulsion-Type Deodorants: Zinc Ricinoleate is particularly useful in formulating emulsion-type deodorants.

Safety and Sustainability

Zinc Ricinoleate comes from castor oil, a natural oil extracted from the seeds of the Ricinus communis plant.

It is considered safe for use in cosmetic products.

Many brands, including Tom’s of Maine, use Zinc Ricinoleate as a natural deodorizer in their products.

Zinc Ricinoleate’s natural origin and effectiveness make it a better alternative to conventional air fresheners’ toxic chemicals and masking agents.
